I have made a Flash video of a fortune cookie and at the end the white piece of paper is supposed to display a different fortune every time. I've used PHP cases for that. It doesn't work.

Right now I am just trying to display any PHP text on top of the Flash video.

Code:
<?php


echo '<div style="position:absolute; top: 280px; z-index:5; width: 350px; color: yellow">';
echo 'the';
echo '</div>';

?>-->
the 5 is to be sure it's above the movie layer, which has a smaller index
none of it works. I don't know if the 'the' is behind the movie or heading graphic or anything. Sorry I can't show the actual site. It's on my computer. If that would help, I can upload it and graphic and video.

The complete code (for those of you with a lot of time on your hands) is below:


HTML Code:
<html>
<head><title></title>
<style type="text/css">

body {
	background-color: black;
	color: black;
	text-align: center;
	font-size: 17px;
}

#center_wrapper {
	margin-right: auto;
	margin-left:auto;
	width: 720px;
} 

#center_wrapper2 {
	margin-right: auto;
	margin-left: auto;
	width: 350px;
	display: block;
}


</style>

I didn't really know when I was embedding the Flash video either.

Is PHP even the right thing to make this work? Is what I'm trying to do even possible?
