Configuration Tips


Note that the height / width order changes from the upper part of the code to the lower. Internet Explorer expects the code one way, and other browsers the alternative.

If you make a mistake and find that the page cannot be edited because Flash is stopping the page from fully loading, simply turn off Flash in the web browser and return to the page for editing.

To allow flyouts to appear over the top of embedded Flash in Firefox, set wmode="transparent".
