    New Internet Explore update issue with flash files (not focused - causing a border)

    Hey I have a question about working around the new IE (internet explorer) issue. They released an update that causes my flash objects to not be in focus (IE 6.02 Windows XP). So when the user rolls over a flash animation it makes a border around it and nothing works in the flash file until they click on it.

    I guess they had some legal issues or something.

    If you don't know what I am talking about you can download the latest IE updates and use the code below and you will see what I mean.


    Code:
    <object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,29,0" width="719" height="286">
              <param name="movie" value="test.swf" border="0">
              <param name="quality" value="high">
              <embed src="test.swf" quality="high" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="719" height="286"></embed>
    	    </object>
    It says "click to activate and use this control" when you roll over the flash object

    I figure that javascript can work around this, but I can't figure it out. I see yahoo's flash animations don't cause the issue so there must be a way around it.

    Thanks for the help

    Ok I found a page on a workaround it is a bigger thing than I thought. They wanted $521 million from microsoft for liscening of these tags. That's crazy. Microsoft did the right thing. Here is the page with the work around
