I have a swf that i want to fit to the entire index page. I've looked on the forum to see if someone else posted it, and i hope i haven't missed it as to not annoy anybody :). Is there a way to make the browser fit it to 100%? I did what I thought needed to be done with the margins and scale, but it's not behaving properly-what am i missing? I'm new at this, and I appreciate any help.

hiya kenny,
You're missing the basic structure of a webpage, even the <html> tag!

1. Make sure you have a valid document, let DW build it for you if you don't know html/css.
2. set 100% width only on the flash movie, or your movie will be distorted.
3. Set 100% width in both embed tags and object tag.
