How can I replace a swf file with an image file if the user is using an iphone or "non-flash" browser? I have the swf displaying in an iframe.

<iframe seamless="seamless" src="Images\TIHeader.swf" name= "iframe1" width ="100%" height="200" align="left" scrolling="no" frameborder="0" class="roundmid" id="frame1" onload="resize_iframe()" overflow="yes"></iframe>

What is the code for the iFrame i.e. the flash.
If you are using the object tag you can include a fallback

<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash">
  ...
  ..
  <img src="images/fallback.jpg" />
</object>

Instead of calling the swf directly, place that flash in an object code block (like the example above) and in it's own page and change the iframe src to this new page.
