Why doesn't anything show up?

Head out to http://www.cmsongwriter.com. I've got the code for the page writen below and the stylesheet code attached.

There's something about the way I'm coding things that's keeping anything other than the header swf from showing up. Below that should be the title_marquee.swf and it's not showing up and I don't know why.

What am I doing wrong?

You can see the title_marquee.swf code and file by going out to http://cmsongwriter.com/title_marquee.html so you can be assured that it's sitting on the server, but it's not showing up on the default page. Why?

Here's my html:

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en">
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />

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

your first object is missing a </object>

also, you HTML is wrong in many places. try

http://validator.w3.org/

to validate your code.

also, you are using tables for layout which will cause several issues. your complete outer table could be displayed by one single <div class="whatever> ... </div> and some basic CSS.
