First off, welcome to the forums!

Secondly, do you mean you want to start a Flash animation from a hyperlink? As far as I know, that can't be done. You can, however, put in a play button inside Flash and the give an onClick actionscript to that play button to advance to a specified frame in your Flash movie. Simply put, you can create something that *looks* like a regular hyperlink into Flash and have that be your play button. Can we see what you have so far? A link to your page, perhaps?

If you're distributing via CD, why not construct the whole interface in Flash or perhaps a Flash/Director hybrid? What reason do you have for making part of the interface HTML?

The Flash part is movies that I want to add in the HTML and to start via the navigation menu, then burn onto CD.

Thanks

I understand... I am asking you why you are using HTML at all in the first place if the app already makes use of a Flash interface and is being delivered on CD. It seems that the HTML interface elements are perhaps unecessary, and since they are hindering what you want to do here, we come back to my original question: why not just do the whole interface in Flash or perhaps a combination of Flash and Director or something like that?

Thanks will look at that option.

To be fair, I'm not certain I'm entirely clear on your intentions. For instance, if anything on this CD were ever intended to be distributed over a network, I could see the usefulness of some HTML foundation of some sort.

Thanks, that was the intention to use over a network, thats why I wanted to incoperate useing part of the exsisting web progam on the intranet.
