I have the following iFrame which loads a flash movie (swf)

In IE6 when it outputs, I see the iFrame as a white box, however the SWF movie doesn't load in IE6, only in IE7, Firefox, Safari.

Here is the code:

<iframe src="http://movie.sample.com/search.php?link=80392293986269300121321366834569062730012132136953" height="auto" width="auto" frameborder="0" scrolling="no">
</iframe>

The source of the iFrame is a File (SWF) not an HTML Page. Is that supported in IE6?

IE6 does not handle SWF well, and certainly not in an iframe -- yes it is a deficiency, not so much a bug.

To get around it, make an HTML page with a caption, and footer and INCLUDE the SWF into that HTML page.

Then run the page into an iframe as such --

<A href="swf-page.htm" l target="iframe1">click here for full HTML with SWF</A>

That should work fine.
