Hello all ...I have a website which is basically HTML 4.0.1.I have a Shockwave Flash Navigation Menu named menu.swf , and I am using the following Code to add to the site ....This Code was actually created by Macromedia Dreamweaver ...

<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='170' height='368'>          <param name='movie' value='menu.swf'>          <param name='quality' value='high'>          <embed src='menu.swf' quality='high' pluginspage='http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer' type='application/x-shockwave-flash' width='170' height='368'></embed>      </object>

The code works fine in the browser, but when I validate it using W3's Validator, it says Validation failed as there is no Tag named Embed ....Will my code work without Embed tag :)What should I do ...is there any error in my Coding ??

i use this for my flash movies and it validates

<object data="flash.swf" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="400" height="400"><param name="movie" value="flash.swf" /><param name="wmode" value="transparent" />alternate text goes here for those without flash</object>

OK, but we need the EMBED Tag, otherwise Netscape users cannot see anything :) Insertion of Embed Tag actually makes the problemAny Solutions ?
