I have fly-out menus that fly-out over a flash movie. At first, the flash layer covered the fly-out portion. I resolved the cover-up problem in the big 3 browsers (Chrome, IE, Firefox), and am happy with the outcome. However, the code validation says that the wmode="transparent" element is a problem.
Here is the code I am using. It works, but does not validate. The problem lies in the 'wmode' element. Using the 'transparent' value in both places, as shown below, gets the menu to fly-out properly in the big3 browsers. Using only one 'transparent' value works in 1 or 2 browsers but not all 3, but does not validate here either. What is the deal with the 'wmode', or how can I change the code to get it to validate?
