DHTML-enhanced browsers can composite and layer the content they render. They usually let browser extensions (plugins & controls) handle their own rendering, directly-to-screen, for speed. More and more browsers have added a switch so that an extension can instead pipe their output into the browser's compositing buffer, and many extensions have been written to tap into that ability. The way this piping is triggered is via the WMODE argument in the OBJECT & EMBED tags. With the Adobe Flash Player, this handles both layering and background-transparent compositing, so that you can overlay non-rectangular visuals atop the HTML body. I see in the source to the parkdayschool.com that the OBJECT tag has a WMODE value of "window", and the EMBED tag has a value of "opaque", so different browsers might end up displaying differently here. jd -- John Dowdell .
