Good morning!

The title kinda says it all... I have a search widget, which has opening popups. The popups appear over the html page, so we have placed the swf on dhtml layer.

The problem is, there is a link underneath the flash layer and it has been made inoperative by the flash layer sitting over the top.

Is it possible to make this link clickable THROUGH the transparent areas of flash layer?

One solution might be to place invisible buttons insode the swf. However, this would not work if the user changed their text size... then the html link image would shift. So I really could dop with a better solution.

Any help would probably be a real saver!!!! yikes!!!!!!!!! :(
