Flash8's ExternalInterface and Internet Explorer

This is for the googlers who might run into the same problem as me..

If you try to use ExternalInterface, your flash object should not be a in a html <form> tag.. If that is the case, ExternalInterface will not work at all!

I had a hard time figuring this out, until I stumbled upon a comment in the LiveDocs.

    Well seems like there are some good solution :) Mine was actually simply moving the flash object out of the form ;)
