That URL didn't work for me. Is it correct? I can't really begin to guess
the structure of your movie, but I have a hunch either you're calling stuff
(with tell target) before it's loaded, or you have movie clips that don't
have instance names, or you're using several .swf's stacked on levels but
they're not named consistently. If it works fine locally, it may be
because things load almost instantly there, whereas they're slower on the
web (and, therefore, not available to be targeted immediately). Check to
see if, once loaded into your browser's cache, it now runs correctly when
you revisit the site. Then empty the cache and test again. Really, it
could be anything :-), we need more details (and a working URL).

Best wishes,
