I think your !IE syntax is incorrect which maybe causing it to fail. Theres a extra > which I don't think should be there. For including flash cross browser I normally prefer to use SWFObject (http://code.google.com/p/swfobject/) which handles the cross browser compatibility.

Hey guys,

I did some work on getting flash to work on a site for x-browser support and came across this method. which means the whole thing can be simplified as an this example used on one of my sites:

<object width="400" height="150" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="assets/banner/preloader-banner-1.swf">
<param name="movie" value="assets/banner/preloader-banner-1.swf" />
<param name="quality" value="high" />
<param name="wmode" value="opaque" />
<img src="assets/banner/banner-still.jpg" title="Your browser does not support Flash objects so here is a picture of a snowboarder instead" alt="New Zealand Snow Board image"/>
</object>

Essentially replace classid with type="application/x-shockwave-flash". It's tested on Firefox, Opera, Safari, Chrome & IE6+ and I think you'll agree it's a lot simpler!

Hope that helps

Rich
