Urgent: Flash not showing up properly in Internet Explorer when using the published code from Adobe?

It turns out that the Flash swf is appearing okay in Safari and FireFox, but good old Internet Explorer is having some issues.  It appears that the javascript that Adobe outputs is causing the problem that I'm experiencing.  When you cursor over the flash at the top you get an odd frame around the swf.  Then, if you scroll all the way to the bottom and take a look, there is an identically sized block down there as well from something.

Could you advise as to how to properly get this issue resolved so that we still can have the benefits of the javascript checking for the proper version of Flash Player, etc.?

The site in question is jcedb dot com.  You'll see the swf right off the bat at the top, and then again at the bottom.

The flash doesn't play on IE6 anyway if active-X is disabled, which many people do on IE6 because of the security vulnerabilities.  Also the central truck image is positioned too far to the right and overlaps the text to the right.  And as I explained in the other question, in IE6, the third column of the footer -- sure enough -- is popping down to the next set of lines, because the width (not) specified isn't wide enough to take in all three columns.

I think I'm following what you're saying, but I'm not seeing it clearly enough without more specifics.

In the bottom footer containing DIV, you need to specify a width="xxx" pixels which is WIDE enough to take in all three DIVs, including margins and padding, to stop IE wrapping the last column to the next set of lines.

If col1=200 and col2=300 and col3=200, then the containing DIV needs to be AT LEAST width:750px to allow all three to fit into it.  I don't know how I can be clearer than that.  TRY IT !!
