Paul, the only way I know how to do this is via a frameset. Basically you
have a frameset with 2 rows, set to 100% and *, the main page being the one
with your flash in it, the bottom frame being an empty.htm page. If this
sounds confusing e-mail me directly jasonatintervisual [dot] com and I can send you
a file that has samples of the 3 pages you would require to do this.

Importance: High


Jason,

Well, we're getting there at last! The addition of - " - before toolbar
seemed to do the trick. Yes I was getting an error message that I forgot to
mention. The trouble is that although the window opens the correct size
there is a border around the top and left side, and the image is croped off
on the right and at the bottom. Any ideas how I can get around this?

Thanks once again.

Cheers.

Paul.
