This article goes over how to embed flash elements, while maintaining XHTML validation... I can't seem to get it to work for me under Moz... any suggestions?

I just saw a converter to xhtml somewhere on the web. If you have php, you could try this (http://www.evilwalrus.com/viewcode/482.php) one. If not, try searching. :p
PS - 9cy.com is a free host with php :thumbsup:
I don't remember having any problems with that example before.... which build of Mozilla do you have, and do you have the Flash plugin installed for it?

I've got Moz 1.3b (nightly - Jan 20, 2003), and Flash plug-in 6.0.65 (the latest). Specifically, I've had problems with SWF images. Moz doesn't want to display them. Same problem in Opera 7.0b2 (with Flash 6.0.65).

Here's what I have for flash, it validates, but the flash won't load:
<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="c.swf?path=horses.swf"
<param name="movie" value="c.swf?path=horses.swf" />

It should work like that - does for me; are you sure there's not some other problem to do with using the Flash plugin in your mozilla - might be a problem there - does the demo in that article work okay in your same browser?
But NB - the technique described in that article doesn't work in Win IE5.0. To make it work, compliant, *and* get IE5.0 support, I eventually had to do this:
<!--[if IE 5]>
<![if ! IE 5]>
<param name="movie" value="home.swf" />
Which is ridiculous I know, and it gets worse - inverse conditional comments (by which I mean, NOT conditions) don't work properly in IE5.0 either - they do actually work, but the closing <![endif]> shows up as literal text on the page, so you have to surround the object in a DIV or something and set its text colour the same as your background!
