I have an SWF file that uses the EMBED tag to define certain attributes. But when I had this page validated by www.w3schools.com, it said that none of the attributes I had listed existed. Here is my code:

<object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,29,0" width="600" height="100">
	<param name="movie" value="images/opening.swf">
	<param name="quality" value="high">
	<embed src="images/opening.swf" quality="high" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="600" height="100"></embed>

It told me for example, "there is no attribute SRC" and it did that for every attribute within the embed tags shown above (quality, pluginspage, etc.). My questions are: Is there a type of page that will support these attributes? Also, I am using Flash MX 2004 to make the SWF file; is there something I should be doing in flash to make my EMBED tags valid in html pages?

Try using the following format when embedding Flash:

<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="filename.swf"
width="200" height="200" id="movie1">
<param name="movie" value="filename.swf">
<p>You need the Flash plugin.</p>
<p<a href="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer/">Download Macromedia Flash Player</a></p>

That should validate...
