    Being only semi-familiar with CSS, not sure how I would keep an embedded flash object (eg: a YouTube video) in BEHIND the header at the bottom in the MNML theme.

    Using my own YouTube plugin, the text around the Flash passed behind the header as you scroll, but the flash object itself passes in front of the header.

    Have tinkered a little, but not really getting anywhere.

  2. The problem is related to the "transparent" value of the flash object: try to googling about that!

    This is an older post, but I'm having the same issue now. My main navigation dropdowns are actually 'behind' my embedded object on my welcome page.

    I have googled transparency, and I've tried a couple things in CSS. Any more assistance would be a great help!

  4. You are probably looking for wmode transparent. But you have to declare wmode twice: As a param for Internet Explorer and inside the embed for the other browsers.

    <object width="123" height="123">
    		<param name="movie" value="http://"></param>
    		<param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param>
    			<embed src="http://" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="123" height="123" wmode="transparent" ></embed>
