At first I thought it was a simple case of wrapping it in an A HREF.
Hovering over the SWF displays the URL in the browser but clicking on
the SWF does not work. I then did some googling and this is the best
answer I found.....

If you mean making your Flash movie a link, you cannot do that via HTML.
You have to create a button inside your movie itself and add actions to
the button to do what you want to do.

If you are talking about my headings on this site: http://helderberg.cc/
then here is the code J.J:

<div style="width:220px;font-family: verdana;font-weight: bold;text-transform: capitalize;text-align: left;padding:10px;background-color:#ECF3E1;border:solid 1px #B3C58F;"> YOUR TEXT HERE </div>

Just change the background and border colour to suit your needs.
