Hi everyone

I need to insert a flash animation into a xhtml page as content (i.e. flash object is referenced in my xhtml code). However, I need that the page still validates against W3C xhtml validator.

Can anyone help me with this?

Thanks to anyone who might read and/or help with ideas.

P.S: even though for this page it must be included as content I would also like to take the opportunity to ask if anyone knows how to insert a flash animation as background (referenced only in a css stylesheet).

and changed only the name of the swf files.

Thanks again.

Fair enough. So here's a test page I'm using to try and figure out what's wrong with it. I can't show you the "real" page because of it's contents (I'm developing it for a customer). Sorry.

I've found my error. I misspelled application in the OBJECT element. That was the problem all along.

Thanks for the tips anyway. Smile
