    I am not sure I understand the question. Are you trying to link an object in Flash to an html page or picture? Or are you trying to control something in Flash with an external html link?

    I was actually wondering the same thing...I think!

    I am actually JUST beginning to learn Flash so I'm not sure if this is at all
    possible. I have three layers, 35 frames apiece (Note: the following is the
    exact order in my FLA):

    L1] sound
    L2] Shape tween
    L3] 34 blank frames, 35th has text which just says click to enter

    In the 35th frame of L2 (layer 2) I have a shape, an "X" to be exact. I would
    like to have it so that when a user clicks on the "X" they are sent to a PURE
    HTML page. I guess you could think of this Flash file as an into (for neubs).
    I already tried editting the HTML file Flash generated and surrounding the
    <OBJECT> tage with an <a href=""> tag...no luck! I'm just about to take a look
    at the Action Script section of the book I'm reading. Would that have anything
    to do with the outcome of my question? Thank you in advance.

    You can do this in a number of ways, the easiest. Make the X from the text
    tool, or, make the X with a graphic program so that the X is actually a picture.

    Click the picture once so it's highlighted, then in the behavior panel, click
    +, "goto web page" then enter your URL of the HTML doc you want to go to.

    The behavior should look like this:

    on (release) {

    //Goto Webpage Behavior
    getURL("http://www.macromedia.com","_self");
    //End Behavior

    }
