Default Flash + Div + Transparency + Mac = Trouble

The URL in question is


Works fine and dandy on a PC, but when you look at it on a mac..the hidden part is hidden fine but you can't click on anything that is supposedly under the hidden part.

Has anybody encountered this issue before? Any workaround before I scrap the whole flash thing and redo it in DHTML (gag).

P.S. You should see a turquoise background on a pc just for the visual sake of the dimensions of the swf.

Forgot to add some pertinent information...

The swf is in a div with the following style applied to it.

#container {
width: 100%;
height: 10px;
background-color: #00FFFF;
float: left;
margin-right: -200px;
margin-top: -13px;
z-index: 2;
position: absolute;

Also, the swf is outputted via javascript to fix the IE issue.. but that isn't the issue since I have tried it the normal way as well with the same results. It seems wmode is being used correctly in both the embed and param tags.

The wmode parameter is not supported by all and every version of Mac browsers. As far as I know the only parameter that works without any errors is "normal". "Opaque" and "Transparent" can cause errors in some Mac browsers.

I would'nt use this mode at all , many old window browsers have the the same problem.
