One interesting aspect of using Flash widgets on web pages is transparency. In some situations it's good to leave background behind transparent Flash widget as it is to get floating, natural effect. Widget will look almost as part of your template except it can react to mouse movements and/or include some interesting animation.

You can also take advantage of transparent Flash widget by including background image right into your HTML tag which embeds Flash file. Take a look at recently published Office Transparent Flash Clock at my Flash2nd blog. Here are some suggestions how you can use this widget.
