If you use the IE Dev toolbar (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=e59c3964-672d-4511-bb3e-2d5e1db91038&displaylang=en), then in IE7 it sees no code after the div #flash.

Looking at your code, you then have:

<!--[if !IE]><-->
<object data="http://www.ukwillsandtrusts.co.uk/flash/willsheader_v8.swf" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" height="397" width="970">
<param name="quality" value="high" />

<param name="menu" value="false" />
<param name="pluginurl" value="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" />
<param name="wmode" value="transparent" />
FAIL (the browser should render some flash content, not this).
<!-- end of flash -->

Your IE conditional comment should start

<!--[if !IE]>-->

(although I have seen some people use your version) and end


I suspect IE isn't seeing the end of the conditional comment for non-IE browsers and hence isn't showing anything else.
