Heres a simple one for you.

:deluxelimos.com.au

4 Pages, simple flash slideshow, pure css, so it was a bit of fun.

The form was tricky to organise, both for styling and the actual form submission (yay perl scripts).

Well, it's a total mess in

Well, it's a total mess in Opera 9.2. Your content is covered up by your graphic and unreadable because of that.

for such a standards aware browser, opera always seems to give me the problems...

its targeted for ie6 and the older generation, but I might have a look in my spare time and see if i can fix the opera problem. I'm assuming that your talking about the front page, It has a flash file to the right,

It might have something to do with the validation not passing the variables used for displaying the swf file.

Yes, it might well. Standard compliant methods of enclosing Flash are well known and widely documented on the web and if you don't take the time and learn how to use them you don't really have a basis to complain about how any browser renders a page. There are no standards as to how browsers should render invalid code.

use swfobject (google it) for a valid way to put in a flash file.

Ditto in Safari... at least the Beta Safari 3 shows the front page a bit messed up.

Done SWFobject flash workaround

I used swfobject in the past, but ran into a few problems with styling it etc (being able to set align=right on an object tag, havn't found a replacement for the javascript version.).

Worked around and seems fine again in IE6 now with the swfobject working.

I like swfobjects alternate to giving your flash file variables, but don't need that on this site.

Appears fine in IE6, Safari.... 2.0? and firefox 2.0.

*edit* I should make that clearer, I used swfobject in there, and its up now.
