    Just tried to slip that menu in, works pretty well but you need to decide wether your going to use tables or CSS layers?

    It gets complicated when you start building you site within layers and tables, tables within layers fine, but when your using css and tables for positionging elements its not the easiest. Theres planety of css templates out there that would easily mirror what you are trying to achieve.

    edit made purely with CSS no tables

    They look very good, if they work over flash docs then i am interested in changing the site design. it may sound stupid but i couldn't get them to work on a blank document.

    Could you email me a demo of the working so i can manipulate it to fit my site.

    Thankyou Gavin

    When creating your flash file, you need to change the Window Mode.
    Go to publish settings, HTML tab, and change window mode to transparent windowless.
    Equally place wmode=transparent within the <embed> tag in you html for your flash object.

    Edit: Just seen your flash virtual tour (the floorplan one, not the photos.) How did you do that? Please tell me you used a tool i can download. I want something like that effect but don't have the time to create it by myself.

    The floor plan does look good now if you could add a ilst of where all the high value equipment and computers are then the thieves will have a lovely downloadable loot list.



    But seriously it does look good.
