I have created a new site in Dreamweaver CS4. The website is actually a flash file added to the index.html page in Dreamweaver. I have 2 problems so far.

1) There is a white border surrounding the flash file. No matter how big or small I make the flash file the white border stays proportional to it. I know it is the blank index page to add content to, but I do not know how to make the flash file cover the entire page.

2) When I press the "play" button in the "Properties" window the file will not play. The button turns gray as if it is going to start, but it doesnt. I CAN preview the file in my browser and it works fine.

If anyone has any tips or suggestions I would appreciate it.
thanks

You have 20px of left and right padding on your mainContent div which is part of the problem and you shouldn't have use a variable width for #container.

And 1200px is a pretty wide web page!

where do i go to to change these values so that the flash file is centered and the white disappears. yea the site is pretty wide, but i orginally started the design in illustrator and decided to move it to flash for the animation.
thanks again for the answers.
