Hi, I embedded an avi video on my web page but my navigation sub menu that is in Fireworks cannot be seen. The video is shows over the menu. Is it possible to show the nav menu on top of the video?

Fraid not. (or not so as I've seen)

If you embed video, flash, etc into web pages they act as black holes for any HTML based elements.

I'd like to know of a fix for this if anyone has seen it. Problem's been around quite a while now...

Ok. Thanks.

I know I can make it work with flash video by setting the parameter "wmode = transparent" but I have been told that flash video isn't the best video to have on your web page since it can't be seen by various browsers. Is this still true?

Nice tip :)

I have been told that flash video isn't the best video to have on your web page

I actually disagree - look at the larger video content providers out there - most (including YouTube) use Flash to present video - IMO it's the defacto, for now.
