    its definately a trick inside the movie, as it works if you reference the
    swf directly also.

    This may be too little too late but here goes. I'll use Goldfinger's web site
    as an example (www.maverick.com/goldfinger). The principal of acheiving this is
    such: you have a large photo as a layer in your .fla doent. In Goldfinger's
    case it is centered vertically and horizontally to the stage (mind you the
    stage is much smaller than the photo itself, the stage is like 400px. x
    600px.). The content fits within the stage size. In an actions layer, frame 1
    for example, write the following code in the actions pane:
    fscommand ("fullscreen",true);
    fscommand ("allowscale",false);
    The last trick is to adjust your publish settings. Open that up and modify the
    "HTML" tab. Change the "Dimensions" pulldown to say "Percent" and make sure
    that the Horizontal and Vertical text fields say "100". In the "Scale"
    pulldown, select "No scale." Lastly, the "Flash Alignment" needs altered
    (depends on what your going after). On Goldfinger's site, they set it as
    "Horizontal: Center" and "Vertical:Center". Scale your browser and notice the
    content of that site is always centered in the browser window.

    That's how that all works.
