Web Player Problems

Msg#: 4335537 posted 3:14 am on Jul 6, 2011 (gmt 0)

I cant figure out for the life of me how to slove this problem. I thought i might join this site and get some input as to what i need to do to solve it.
I have a flash player on my site that is only in its intended place at a screen resolution of 1280x1024. if anything other than that, the player gets thrown off to the side. i know that it has a Z-index and is set to absolute, but is there a way to make it stay where it belongs no matter what the resolution is? i hope i have explained the problem correctly.
here is a link to the page.

I think you're looking at a CSS problem. It's not showing at all for me in FF but is in position in IE9. You're using a "half doctype"

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">

as opposed to a full doctype

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">

Which throws the page into quirks mode. I'd start by validating the page [validator.w3.org]
