    Active Content Issue

      hi - go to the above. i followed the instructions and info from other postings and am able to get an HTML page generated by Flash to take care of that IE browser active content problem.

      http://clerccenter.gallaudet.edu/temp/various-flash-tests/fix-embedded.html

      then go to the above link. this is the SWF file placed onto a blank HTML page with Dreamweaver. Obviously, the active content fix does not work now. so my question is how do i get this to work when i want to place flash content on my page through using DW?

      I read somewhere that i may need to link up the JS file. can someone help me with that? PS - i'm not good with writing JS code.

      thanks.

          The IE Active Content issue is a pretty popular one lately, as you can
          imagine. The easiest, most convenient solution I know of is to use a tiny
          JavaScript application called FlashObject. -- Scratch that. I just learned
          that the developer felt compelled by Adobe to change the name of his free
          product to SWFObject. (Sigh.) Okay, so it's SWFObject, then. And a
          beautiful piece of code it is. Give it a shot, Mike. Very easy to use.
          But if you have questions, write back.
