Centering Flash Websites??
I've designed a website in flash but I don't know how to center it horizontally as well as vertically. I know that if I ad a <center> tag, that centers it horizontally only. Does anyone know how to center it so that when you re-scale your browser, the website remains centered horizontally and vertically?
The code at the moment is this:
<!--url's used in the movie-->
<!--text used in the movie-->
<object classid="clsid:d28cdb6e-ae6d-12cf-97b7-444772540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=7,0,0,0" width="910" height="500" id="main" align="middle">
<param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain" />
<param name="movie" value="main.swf" />
<param name="quality" value="high" />
<param name="bgcolor" value="#ffffff" />
<embed src="main.swf" quality="high" bgcolor="#ffffff" width="910" height="500" name="main" align="middle" allowScriptAccess="sameDomain" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" />
For an example to see what I mean look at http://www.louisvuitton.com
Your help would be greatly appreciated,
use a table!

Yep - table's quickest. It's a bit of a blag and SEO boys'll frown, but hey - it's flash, no search engine can read it anyway!
Change your width and height to percentages (100% on both)
If you mean when you publish the movie out of Flash - don't. It blows all the fonts, pictures, everything and looks horrible.

There are some good tutoriasl out these, I can't remember the urls at the mo, but the help in Flash isn't too bad for the Stage object.
I meant what i said, create the swf then alter the html to 100% width and height, it doesnt affect the formatting and looks exactly the same on all screens. I create flash website on a 17" and can view it in 14",15",17",19" etc. It doesnt matter at all what resolution/screen size you use
I disagree - if you are setting the swf to 100% then it looks rubbish. If you are setting the table that holds it to 100% that's different.
Setting the swf to 100% DOES NOT WORK if you want to have a good looking site.
We'll have to agree to disagree worthyashes as ive set the swf to 100% on alot of sites and never had a problem before but i was suggesting to alter the table (ie. html) to 100%. Ive done that before as well and works fine
Anyway looking at the site again through firefox 1.5 i dont have a problem with alignment at all, only with the height as i get a small scroll.

don't use a table they slow down your browser! put it into this:
<div style="margin: 0 auto;">
