The short version offered by w3schools.com doesn't validate for me:
<object width="550" height="400">
<param name="movie" value="somefilename.swf">
<embed src="somefilename.swf" width="550" height="400">
Re: flash swf
In the sense of being rather badly written. Technically it's spot on
data="../animation/menu.swf" width="298" height="100">
<param name="movie" value="../animation/menu.swf" />
A List Apart:
data="movie.swf" width="400" height="300">
<param name="movie" value="movie.swf" />
Spot the difference?
The only time the satay part of the ALA articles is needed is when you
have a large Flash movie that you want to be streamed. For small,
non-streaming movies the above code, which the ALA article gives half
way, down works fine.
But in both cases the <object> element is missing any content. That's
forgivable on ALA where they're talking about hypothectical code and
where alternative content at the end of the article but is
unforgivable on a real web site. subhuman.net looks rather silly with
the top half of the right hand column being nothing but a blank space.

Re: flash swf
Subhuman works fine for IE and Opera, but FF has the blank area on my
I get around that by putting a static image, eg:
Of course that only works if the flash isn't interactive.
