I was recently working on a new gallery display using a flash interpretation of the Apple Cover Flow view. The problem I had was the flash movie swf content was displaying infront of the css drop down on the site. The css dropdown was built using divs and the flash content was in a div but it didn’t seem to matter the settings on those divs.

To get the flash to display behind the css drop down menu you just have to set the wmode property to transparent. This setting must be made both in the AC_FL_RunContent call and in the Flash Object or by choosing Transparent Window in the Publish Settings menu in flash.
