Flash z-order — always on top?

I was trying to use a javascript pull-down menu that was just above a flash movie. The pull down was always BEHIND the flash movie, no matter how I set the z-order. Here is how I fixed it:

  • Adding this parameter to the OBJECT tag: <param name=”wmode” value=”transparent”>
  • Adding this parameter to the EMBED tag: wmode=”transparent”

With those added parameters, the menu now extended down over the flash portion properly.
