    Flash banner works in Firefox but not in IE

    Hi everyone.

    I'm new to flash and trying to embed a flash banner on my site. I have found that it works in Firefox but (surprise surprise) not in IE. In IE it just shows a white space!!

    The .swf code is as follows:

    <OBJECT classid="clsid: D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000"
    codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=8,0,0,0"
    WIDTH="468" HEIGHT="60" id="bottomflashbanner3"><PARAM NAME=movie VALUE="myFlashMovie.swf">
    <PARAM NAME=quality VALUE=high><PARAM NAME=bgcolor
    VALUE=#FFFFFF><EMBED src="images/bottomflashbanner3.swf"
    quality=high bgcolor=#FFFFFF WIDTH="468" HEIGHT="60"
    NAME="bottomflashbanner3" ALIGN="" TYPE="application/x-shockwave-flash"
    PLUGINSPAGE="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer"></EMBED></OBJECT>


    To give you an idea of what's happening I have uploaded it onto a sub page of my site which can be viewed at http://www.crystalcleardubs.com/alias.html . It's the banner at the bottom of the page.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    Andy

    Any clues?
    btw, I'd recommend you to use swfobject
