re: relative URLs in Mac IE

Mac IE reconciles relative paths for Flash movies relative to the SWF file, which is totally different than all of the other browsers, which use the HTML document. Therefore, a relative URL in a SWF
displayed in Mac IE may not work.

TechNote 13638 explains how to use the BASE attribute to specify a directory to reconcile relative URLs in the HTML. However, this can break Netscape as well. The only two sure-fire ways to make this

1. Use absolute URLs
2. Put SWFs and HTML files in the same directory, always.
