Flash Window Mode Explained

I was running into an odd problem where a Flash movie was showing up behind the content of my page. Back in the day, HTML and Flash didn't always play nice together - with Flash usually ignoring any requests to put stuff on top of it.

Turns out, the issue has been addressed (probably for some time) and I'm only now learning about the details. They are nicely all explained here.

What's most useful is that when you're done with the article, you'll understand what the wmode parameter is for.

Though I haven't fully tested it, I think after all my research, hacking and general debugging I learned that I didn't exactly find a bug in Safari on Mac.

Instead, I learned I found a bug in my ability to spell. I had the CSS declaration:

#intro {
   positiontion: absolute;
   top: 0px;
   left: 0px;

Yeah, I could see how that could muck up the works.
