Question

I'm trying to embed a flash file into my html page but i want the text to wrap around the flash file. Ive messed around with the publish settings with no results. When i try to align="left" in the html i get the text wrap but the flash file disappears! Plus the same thing happens when i right click on the flash file and select Object Tag properties then Style, then Format, then Position left. What am i doing wrong??? I'm new to this...
Any help greatly appreciated.
Thanks!

I've never user wrap around any ActiveX elemement... I think you'r prolly better off creating a table and putting your text in one frame and your flash file in another if that will still achieve the effect you're after...

Question Here is the url if this will help...

Here is the url
http://www.kleenkuip.com/restoration..._flood_pro.htm
As it stands right now the guy riding the flood pro is and animated gif file. Ive made a smaller flash file and would like to embed it into the exact same place with the text wrap. If i were to use tables how would the text wrap around the table with the flash inside it? I can't say that ive seen that done before.
YOu say that you've never tried wrapping text around a flash file but can it be done?
Any other ideas?
Thanks

Never tried it, so I did.

Code:
 <PARAM NAME=movie VALUE="wrap.swf"> <PARAM NAME=quality VALUE=high> <PARAM NAME=bgcolor VALUE=#FFFFFF> <EMBED src="wrap.swf" quality=high bgcolor=#FFFFFF  WIDTH=550 HEIGHT=400 TYPE="application/x-shockwave-flash" PLUGINSPAGE="http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/download/index.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash" align="left"></EMBED>
</OBJECT>
Not a problem. Works fine in IE5.5 and NS4.75....
Note that last bit:

Thumbs up Netscape

Hey thanks alot for your help Jesse...turns out that i was pasting the code into the wrong place. One issue though, this Flash file has a transparent background and displays just fine in IE 5.5 but has no transparency in Netscape 4.75...at least that's the version that i have installed on my computer. Check out the url again in Netscape and let me know if there's a way around this.
Thanks
