Flash and HTML

Hi, I’m working on a website that is going to have a content area that is flash and then have the navigation and a small content area that is HTML. Attached is the page layout blocked out. You can see that the flash wraps itself around the bottom and left side of the HTML navigation and when I place the flash object into HTML it creates a block and I am unable to have the navigation above part of the flash. Does anyone have an idea how I can accomplish this and have cross-browser compatibility?
