no, you should. It's not about being a slave, it's just doing things the right way. did you learn about using the object tag instead of embed? What are your remaining errors?

I haven't gotten anywhere with the flash object, I just restored it to its original code.At least my CSS validates. :) Well Ivory soap is only 99.4% pure. :)

It didn't work for me in IE or Firefox.The last piece of code is the complete one? I have skimmed read the page. Its a collection of well done this then done that.
You would do well in actually reading the article. That's the only way to learn things. I don't encourage going on as a web developer by simply copying and pasting code that you find around the place.

<object width="350" height="300"><param name="hdsubsurf4" value="hdsubsurf4.swf"></param><embed src="hdsubsurf4.swf" width="350"height="300"></embed></object>

That is the one I am using. So I'd have to spend my time reading through all that just to achieve my web standards. I currently just don't have the patience. :)

And that's the kind of attitude that will keep people from really wanting to help you out. People on this site are here (presumably) to learn, and for others to help them. We don't mind helping, but only if you want to learn. If you read the article, it actually takes a lot of time to help you understand why it is doing what it is doing. You wanted to know why you're page wasn't validating, and between the people who have posted and the article that was written, you have everything you need to know what the code is, but more importantly, to understand why. It's all too frustrating seeing people just trying to copy paste code without having any idea what it means or what it does. If it seems like we're being harsh, its because we emphasize good (read: standards compliant) habits, and a willingness to teach so that people may learn. Maybe you don't take this stuff seriously, so this kind of attention to detail may not mean much to you, but you did ask about how to make it standards compliant, and we pointed you in the right direction; not sure what was so hard about that.For the record, if you read the article, then you would have realized this is what an example of standards compliant, working code would look like.
<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash data="c.swf?path=movie.swf" width="400" height="300"><param name="movie" value="c.swf?path=movie.swf" /><img src="noflash.gif" width="200" height="100" alt="" /></object>

No I don't think that what you've said was being harsh. Thats just my position thats all.I tried that example too.
That example will only work if you make a special flash file that goes with it. If you read thte article you'll understand.

I see, that would mean using flash software. I had gotten someone on the web last year to do that for me, I had tried to do that myself, but the clips never worked. If I can't do this, then I'll have to leave it as it is. What else can I do?
