Layer Stacking Order & Flash Files - Macromedia Dreamweaver

I have a page that has a flash file and a layer. I want the layer to be above the flash file. In Dreamweaver, this shows correctly, but when I preview, the layer is below the flash file. Why? How do I correct?...

    Jim:

    All Active content on a page will always rise to the top, so to speak,
    including Flash, certain form elements, Java applets, and Active X controls.
    This means that they do poke through layers. There is not a good
    cross-browser/platform reliable way to solve this issue, but if you can be
    confident in your visitors using IE 5+ or NN6+, then you can use the CSS
    wmode parameter. Doesn't work in all browsers (NN4) but it's implemented
    into latest netscape:

    Ok, I've read the article. But as far as i'm aware setting the paramater wmode to transparent will make the flash movie takes longer to load.

    Yes, indeed. I don't know why, but I got this from derek franklin on his book.
    Please consider this Jim, if you want to set it to transparent. Use it wisely :)
