    I am working on my first site but am in a dilemma over my flash intro. I built my site with Frontpage 2003 and all seems to be working well. I embedded the flash intro--an 800x600 splash--in the FP index page. At first, I positioned it top and left, which seemed fine to me as it filled the screen nicely. I checked on another computer from work and it still looked okay. However a couple of friends said it only took up 75% or less of their screens (and these were similar to mine) and looked "too scrunched up" to the top/left. I tried a couple of things...tried making the movie larger, but even that didn't fill their screens and started to distort. So I put it back to 800x600.

    Next I tried moving it around...further to the right. Since there were now gaps all around, I put a similar colored background behind it on the page. By the time I moved it far enough to the right that it appeared more evenly centered to those viewing, it was skewed way to the right for me and I had to scroll to get it in viewing range.

    My question is, what do most of you do when embedding your flash? Do you simply use a default setting and let it be or is there something else you can suggest I do?
    Many thanks for your help!

    It probably doesn't fill up there whole screen because they have a larger resolution than 800x600

    I have put a few splash pages on sites, I prefer it to be small so people don't have to wait for it to load. I then center it on the page.
