I read in your FAQ that we can open a new window from a link in the Caption with target="_blank" using this code in the caption:

<!&#91;CDATA&#91;<a href="somewhere" target="_blank">View Live Site</a>&#93;&#93;>

But the pop-up blockers in modern browsers block the new window.  Are you aware of a different way to get that link to open in a new window from the caption?

Just found my problem.  So that the background of the SWF wouldn't have to be a solid color, I added this code to the embed:


Unfortunately, Safari makes the background and the text transparent.  Where all the other browsers only change the background.  As soon as I removed that code, viola - the text is back.  Oh well.

Could I perhaps edit the text color in the FLA and put the transparency back?

Regardless of the setting, Safari is rendering the caption and title as white.  No control will change this - not the XML or the AS files.  No matter what, Safari makes them white.  This is killin' me.

I understand that Safari is a small cross section of users, but I can't ignore them.  This portfolio is very important and even Safari users should be able to read the captions.  Any advise is very much appreciated.

P.S. - Felix, if you're reading this, SimpleViewer Pro is amazing.

Looks to me like the next and previous buttons are overlapped.  In the FLA source file, both buttons have a large active clicking area.  So, when you think you are clicking in next, the previous is on top making the thumbs cycle previous instead.

I would also like the link to follow the color specified but FireFox and IE do not follow.  Safari will honor the link color but makes all the other text white.  So, either way I am stuck too.

Here is what I have and it works great.  Except Firefox doesn't honor the color on the link and Safari make all the text white - including the Title (which I cannot figure out).
