Need HELP with Macromedia Flashpaper...

Once you have used their Wizard to create a Flashpaper Document from MS Word, how do you place it in HTML so you can see the document?  I can't seem to get it to work.

I found a simple page, and the code doesn't look much different than embedder a regular flash file. You'll have to modify this and put your filename in.

<object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" codebase="http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=7,0,0,0" id="wtclass" align="middle" style="border: 1px solid;">
<param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain" />
<param name="movie" value="yourfile.swf" />
<param name="quality" value="high" />
<embed src="yourfile.swf" quality="high" bgcolor="#ffffff" name="yourfile" align="middle" allowScriptAccess="sameDomain" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" />
</object>

You know, one of the things I have noticed with both .pdf and now flashpaper is the large amount of pixelization or "artifacts" found in anything solid, such as letters, lines or blocks.  It always looks kind of like an overly compressed .jpeg.  This seems quite poor to me and I wonder why this is?  If I compare this output to an actual Word document, the quality is far inferior and disappointing.

I've seem small embedded flashpages and I see what you mean there, but the larger ones tend to look much better. Like this one:

vs the one on the bottom of this page:

But all in all I agree with you, and I'm not sure why this is. I havent used flashpages mch at all, but maybe you can adjust some quality settings within the program?, but that of course would be at the expense of a larger file size if there is such a setting.

black,

In general, considering how long .pdf has been around, and now flashpaper, I guess I just have to say I think it's lame.  Letters always end up looking choppy and "fatter" than the intended font and lord help you if you are trying to emulate a Word table with any structure.

It just seems like they should be able to do something better.
