[thelist] Flash dynamic variable with GoToAndPlay command

Hi all,

Initially, I thought it might be the frame name was incompatible with the dynamic variable, so I tried remove all the names, and use frame number instead.

That is on the html file, 

<embed src="testing.swf?testing=10">

where 10 is the frame number on the movie.

FF worked fine, but still no luck with IE. Whatever frame number I put in the variable, it will just go to play the second key frame on the movie.

Anybody know if there is a way to fix this problem???

Thanks a lot!
