I have a website with an intro page with a couple of layers on top of eachother. Two of them are flashmovies with a 100% fill for both width and height. One is a link which makes it possible to skip the flashmovies if you don't have the plugin installed for some weird reason :)
In IE it all looks fine. In Firefox 9.2 it looks like crap. Both movies have a transparent background by using the wmode=transparant value. I don't use <embed> tags since it is deprecated. Z-index seems not to work. I must overlook something. Here's a piece of the code I use:
AH sorry, that was not very clear from my post indeed. The background movie plays. Then the movie on top of this one loads en starts to play. It starts transparant, but the moving parts in that second movie wipe everything that was first transparant to black. So the transparant wmode only works half.
Now this is very odd. I placed the <embed> properties back and it worked (of course). Then I deleted them...and it still seem to work? This means that the old cade is back....but now it woks.... I don't know what is causing this, but it's a very strange thing.
it still does not work. I htought it worked, but it does not. WHo can help me out here since I haven't got a clue what is causing this. I cannot post the link to the site here, so if you want to see it please send me a private message.
Why not add the skip intro link directly within the HTML page? This way, you're 100% sure that everybody will have access to it, and spiders will spot it - which help your pages get incuded in the SE. It will also make the total amount of code for that page smaller.
