Hi I want to show an image if flash is not installed (eg on a iphone) and want it to be w3c safe so far have

<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash"
data="name.swf"
width="100" height="100">
<param name="movie" value="name.swf" />
<param name="quality" value="high"/>
<param name="wmode" value="transparent"/>
</object>

How do i do it on all browsers, have seen things that are ment to work on some browsers but do not work on all.
some say to do is in vb.net some in java by hiding the tag and some by adding the image in the object tag but this does not work. Please help.

swfobject gives you a good way to do this.

You have a div that contains your *alternate* content (i.e. the content to show if Flash is NOT installed). The swfobject code attempts to place the Flash content (swf) inside this div, thus replacing your alternate content.

See http://blog.deconcept.com/swfobject/

and search the page for 'so.write' (without the quotes) to see the part of the blog post that deals with this.

The swfobject.js code is open source and there are download links at the end of the blog post
