    Suckerfish + Flash + Safari Nightmare

    I'm currently working on a site that has flash elements and uses suckerfish-type CSS/DHTML dropdowns. I overcame the fact that the DHTML elements would appear behind the flash elements by adding wmode = transparent to my object code for my flash. This fixed the problem in IE & Firefox -- but not Safari! Does anyone have reccomendations for what I can/should do about this in Safari so that I don't have to rip my hair out?

    Thanks!

    Anyone?

    One thing I forgot to add was that in Safari, the menu appears above the Flash object (as it should), but only goes behind it when you mouse over any menu item within the list that happens to be on top of the flash object.

    Don't use Flash? Sorry, I can't help since I don't use a Mac.
    For every complex problem, there is an answer that is clear, simple, and wrong.

    I've seen this before, and I'm pretty sure it's a rendering bug, and that there isn't anything you can do about it. My best recommendation would be to report it as a bug, and then try to design around it

    However, you could also try changing the wmode parameter to "opaque" - that might make it work ...
