flash swfObject alignment

Hi Experts,

I'm using swfObject to embed a flash element that sits in a table based page.  Before using swfObject the flash element was sitting between the table rows without any apparent margin/padding or space between them.  (see attachments)

Now after using swfObject with the same dims, there is a space above and below the flash element.  The souce doesn't show and margin or padding applied (using IE dev tools to view).  So what could be causing this?

The td has a div inside that is filled using the swfObject method.  Seems like padding or something?

BTW I tried a quick inline style for the div in the td,  margin:0 & padding:0 and it didn't make any diff.

thanks,

HNM

Do you have a demo I can have a look at, it's possible that its a style being applied to the embed or object tag.
