<cfif form.My_Text contains "<embed" and form.My_Text does not contains "<param name="wmode" value="transparent">">

Try this:

<cfif form.My_Text contains "<embed" and form.My_Text does not contains '<param name="wmode" value="transparent">'>

I had already tried that.

I get this error.
       Invalid CFML construct found on line 96 at column 93. ColdFusion was looking at the following text:' The CFML compiler was processing: A cfif tag beginning on line 96, column 10. A cfif tag beginning on line 96, column 10. The error occurred on line -1.

Sorry, take out contains and replace that with contain like this:
<cfif form.My_Text contains "<embed" and form.My_Text does not contain '<param name="wmode" value="transparent">'>

Note also you can escape quotes by using two.

i.e., ""

The use of single quotes on the outside should be easier though as you don't have to change the original string.
