Dreamweaver offers a shortcut for inserting Flash files into your html.

Insert>Flash on the menu bar will start you off. Then all you need to do is reference the .swf file like you would any other link on your site. Choose from the options provided and away you go. Upload the html file and the .swf file.

Here is an example of what the code looks like for a Flash file that is inserted by Dreamweaver.

<object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#3,0,0,0" width="32" height="32">
        <param name="SRC" value="yourfilehere.swf">
        <embed src="yourfilehere.swf" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/download/" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="32" height="32">
        </embed>
      </object>

By reading through the Dreamweaver help information you will be able to determine which options you should check, according to your individual needs.

Also remember you will need to save your flash working files as .swf to include them in html files. In addition the server running your Flash files must be configured to MIME . I think this part is right! Check with your service provider anyway.
