      "welcome.swf is invalid name enter a different name" (whatever name i give..) and
      "while executing onClick in flash options.htm the following javascript error occured:
      at line 60 of file c:\program files\macromedia\dreamweaver8\configuration\commands\flash options.js:
      dreamweaver can only set an attribute if the current selection is exactly one tag."

          Bear in mind that Flash text has the same drawbacks as Flash navigation -

          1. Some people don't have Flash installed - what do they do?
          2. Search engines can't read Flash text - its content will not be part of
          your page ranking
          3. Screen assistive devices don't read Flash text- what will those users
          do?

          It's usually a very bad idea for these reasons...

            I am having the same problem and I NEED to have flash text capabilities. I am running Dreamweaver 8 on a Mac with Leopard 10.5. This is what I get when I try to insert a Flash Text

            While executing onClick in Flash Options.htm, the following JavaScript error(s) occurred:
            At in 60 of file "Macintosh HD: Applications:Macromedia Dreamweaver 8:Configuration:Commands:FLash Options.js": Dreamweaver can only set an attribute if the current selection is exactly one tag.
