Anybody.... please!!!!!! I'm begging you, please help....
:( :( :(
I've read about them, looked through tutorials ... but now I'm still stuck - got a deadline coming up and have a complete blank on how to center my flash site in the browser window, regardless of which size monitor it is being viewed on....

I've done a flash site (600x400px) and I'd like to put it on the html page in Dreamweaver, setting it up so when viewed - the flash content will always end up in the center of the monitor/browser window, on a small screen the same as on larger monitors.

I would REALLY REALLY REALLY appreciate any help on this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks for listening ;)
Happy flashin' Prisca

<div align="center"></div>

Put your HTML code for Flash between that tag.

Or you could just put it in a table and center the table.

thanks so much for your quick reply :) :) :)

I tried to do as you said - but I don't know much about HTML (enough to understand the <..> and </...> principle but not much more :( ), so I'm probably putting it in the wrong place...
It refuses to budge... still stuck on top of browser window...

When I get some more time - I'll try it again!
THANKS :) :) :)
