Flash Object and CSS Padding

I have a strange padding that sits below my flash object. I do not want the padding. If you make the height 265px of id #flashHeader it sizes correctly. However i want the flashHeader id height to be dynamic as the header will change for the remaining pages. Its almost as if the <noscript> tag is generating a extra line below the object.

Its possibe that <noscript> indeed is generating white space... it is the white space betwen the trailing </script> and the following <noscript>  Not all browsers ignore this white space.

Try leaving no space between them:

</script><noscript .......

I completly removed all the no flash stuff.... still there is a space.. has to e be a css issue?

Commented:
Is the page still broken? I just went to the link to see if I could see the issue, and it appears there is no extra space.

Spacing only happens in Firefox.. has to do with the code within the php being echo on a single line instead of all together.
