Within DW the slide works fine but does not show up in my browser (Safari)... any help would be appreciated.

You have the flash html inside a noscript tag. Remove the noscript tags and you will be ok.

Nice looking site that by the way mate.

Note sure the navigation needs that strong white stroke around it though.

Great! Works fine now... thanks for the comments as well!

Ok somehow I've managed to mess up the layout when it was fine. I've looked over the code for ages and I just can't see what's wrong. As you can see the slide has now dropped below the area it is intended to be positioned. Any ideas please?

Many thanks :)

I would validate the code on it, there's some structural errors which is going to throw all browsers off.

I'm still very new to html/css and Dreamweaver in general. I've done the validation as suggested on the index page and used the browser compatibility check on the css files. I still can't see where I've gone wrong is it was literally working fine a week ago.

Domedia which structural errors can you see?

Your validation tool should come up with lots of errors.
Do you nor run the web developer toolbar? :)

and what is 'top="left"' in your embed tag? That attribute does not exist, it's made up.
Another embed tag says" align="topleft". Align can be left, but not topleft.

Did you consider using swfobject instead? At least then you can read the documentation and know what's going on :)

thanks domedia it took me some time to get my head around it but using swfobject seems to have worked perfectly :)
