Hello I've always used this bit to embed flash...

Code Actionscript:
<object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" width="600" height="139">
    <param name="movie" value="images/intro.swf">
    <param name="wmode" value="opaque">
    <!--[if !IE]>-->
    <object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="images/intro.swf" width="600" height="139">
    <param name="wmode" value="opaque">
    <!--<![endif]-->
    <p>Alt Text</p>
    <!--[if !IE]>-->
    </object>
    <!--<![endif]-->
</object>

But I recently found that this bit seems to work just as well without the hacks. In modern browsers and IE6/7/8. If it does indeed work just as well then why the need for the IE hacks in the above snippet. I'm missing something yeah? Here is a test page I just put up. http://www.websitecodetutorials.com/...embed-test.php

Code Actionscript:
<object data="add-borders.swf" type="application/x-shockwave-flash">
    <param name="movie" value="add-borders.swf">
    <p>Alt Text</p>
</object>
