Hello,
I have a site with a flash banner. I have provided alternative content (on a test page only for now) that is just a static graphic. this works fine on desktop browsers.

i know that iphone does not support flash but it isnt showing the alternative content either. i have used swfobject as shown below:

thanks for any help

jon

script type="text/javascript" src="swfobject.js"></script>
 
 
 
 
<div id="flashcontent">
     <img src="images/alt/static-profile.jpg" alt="profile">
</div>
<script type="text/javascript">
      // <![CDATA[
      var so = new SWFObject("GrassBanners/profile.swf", "Movie", "800", "120", "8", "#031A30");
      so.write("flashcontent");
      // ]]>
</script>

<script type="text/javascript" src="swfobject.js"></script>
 
 
<script type="text/javascript">
    swfobject.registerObject("myId", "9.0.0", "expressInstall.swf");

<div id="flashcontent">
 
  <object id="myId" classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" width="800" height="120">

i have an idea. you buy me an i-phone, and then .... haha
i dont' have any experience working with an i-phone so i'm not sure.
i'd recommend posting on that guys blog, since he obviously has done it before. and check out the forums on the apple site.

thats all i got, sorry.
