[thelist] Transparent Flash

I have a banner with a simple flash animation on the left and text menu to the
right.  With Firefox 2.0 and Flash 9 when I resize the window small
the flash covers the "Home" in the text menu.


I just upgraded to flash 9 on Linux and kind of expected the problem to
go away.  I asked once before about this and was directed to the wmode
option set to "transparent", which is set:

<div id="flashcontent"><embed width="540" height="106" wmode="transparent" quality="best" bgcolor="#c0d9f1" name="home_logo" id="home_logo" src="/static/home.swf" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"/></div>

I also have tried in the past using a z-index, but (IIRC) that won't
work with flash.

Any other tricks to get the banner menu to display on top of the flash
-- or maybe to make the flash background transparent?
