hello,
What is the proper way to embed flash (.swf) into an Ebay listing?

I see it more and more on Ebay where there is a flash video or some sort of flash component in the Ebay listing.

Anybody know what HTML code would do this?
Cheers

----------------------------------------

 <OBJECT id="FlashPlayer" width="290" height="135"
         classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000"
         codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,29,0">

         <param name="quality" value="high">
         <EMBED src="http://www.myhost.com/flashfile.swf" quality="high"  
             pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer"
             type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="290" height="135">
         </EMBED>
   </OBJECT>
