I know that Java Applets dont work well in hidden layers. They seem to want
to be visible at all times.

Can flash modules be on hidden layers?

I am considering using flash modules in a hide/show layer JS script that
would have a menu of topics and then mouse-over or mouse-click would show
the selected layer and its flash module.

I know how to do this JS layer hide/show with just layers and images. It
seems that it should be the same coding for flash modules U NLESS flash
modules are like Java Applets when placed in layers that are to be hidden.

Does anyone have any thoughts on this?
