I doubt it matters much with modern computers but as a nicety to err... Tablet users who have Flash, opaque might be better...<br /><br /><br />There are occasions when IE wont honour the mode or z-index properly.<br /><br />There are a couple of hacks, learned from that time, that can help.<br /><br />The most popular is to hide the Flash object (display:none) when showing an overlay. Shadowbox does this automatically.<br /><br />A more complicated solution is that an IFrame will appear above Flash if positioned over it, because an IFrame is a separate window. But its a hacky solution!Adam Perryhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/16839632259862699051noreply@blogger.com
