I have an issue with javascript includes that constantly gets me.

Whenever I include some javascript, then add another block of javascript code, it seems to 'forget' the first block that I have included.

The error reported is 'SWFObject is undefined'

I'm missing something obvious, but could somebody tell me what...

Thanks in advance.

		so.write("flashcontent");
	}
	</script>

are u saying that

      function loaded()
      {
            var so = new SWFObject("movie.swf", "mymovie", "400", "200", "8", "#336699");
            so.write("flashcontent");
      }
      </script>

is causing


<script type="text/javascript" src="swfobject.js"></script>

to fail?

No, I'vve just solved that problem which was of my own making. I had a window.onload call in the first javascript block which was being over-ridden by the body onload call to the second block. DUH.

As for the swfobject is undefined, I've just re-written the code from bottom up and it is now working, so I still don't know where I went wrong.

Sorry for wasting your time, and thx.
