Hello,

I tried to search and I came up with similar problems listed but cannot quite figure out what the real problem is.

I have a website with a banner image created with Flash.  It works totally fine in IE but it doesn't work at all in FireFox and Opera. Since I am an IE user, I didn't even notice it.

The weird thing is that any other embeded swf files are shown correctly even in Opera and Firefox. However, the banner image with <div> tags is the only one that doesn't appear.  this is very frustrating. If any of you experts could help me, that would be very much appreciated. Here's the code I use for the banner image.
***************************************************************

<div id="banner-img">
<OBJECT classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000"
codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=7,0,00,0"
WIDTH="700" HEIGHT="100" id="banner">
<PARAM NAME="movie" VALUE="http://blablabla/image/banner.swf">
<PARAM NAME="quality" VALUE="high">
<PARAM NAME="bgcolor" VALUE="#000000">
<EMBED src="http://blablabla/image/banner.swf" quality="high" bgcolor="#000000" WIDTH="700" HEIGHT="100"

</EMBED>
</OBJECT>
</div>

Hi Aneesh,

Thanks for the response.  After I read your post and was adding code here, I realized something..... I was so stupid.... There was no "dot" to identify the embedded file...... That was it.  I didn't have "dot" to determine it was a SWF file....

<EMBED src="http://blahblahblah/image/bannerswf" quality="high" bgcolor="#006699" WIDTH="770" HEIGHT="80"


I am so embarrassed that I posted this question... Sorry but since you made me realize it, I give you the points. :-) Thanks.
