Dreamweaver entries for Flash
What can I enter or change in my Dreamweaver code for a Flash
movie so that, if a user doesn't have Flash, they will NOT be
prompted to install plugin AND there will be no telltale signs like
empty plugin boxes or spaces. This is for a home page where I hope
they do have Flash and can see my movie clips but, if they don't, I
do not wish to distract them from the content of my site.
Ideally this solution would be one that doesn't require
Javascript since then I would be requiring Javascript enabled in
order not to be bothered by prompts or empty boxes.
I know that there is SUPPOSEDLY a small percentage of those
who don't have the Flash player installed and of those who dont
have JS enabled, but I seem to run into a lot of them!
Thanks for your help on this issue.

In theory just with plain HTML, the 'object' element and its
capability
of nesting content:
<object
type="application/x-shockwave-flash"
data="example.swf"
width="200" height="150">
Alternative no-Flash content
</object>
Some browsers might require an additional 'param' element:
<object ...>
<param name="movie" value="example.swf">
</object>
But that's it. In theory ...
In practice be prepared for some bad surprises, especially in
broken
browsers like IE.
