Flash related errors in validation

Recommended Posts

W3C validation reports errors in flash code but I cannot fathom as I am a newbie to it all. The navbar I created works perfectly on my site but for validation purposes I want it to be sound code.I used Amara software and the code looks like this: <object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,0,0" width="180" height="500"><param name="movie" value="nav_bar.swf" /><param name="menu" value="false" /><param name="quality" value="high" /><param name="wmode" value="transparent" /><param name="bgcolor" value="000000" /><param name="scale" value="noscale" /><embed src="nav_bar.swf" menu="false" quality="high" wmode="transparent" scale="noscale" bgcolor="#000000" width="180" height="500" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/download/index.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash" /></object> when I send the page to W3C for validation it throws up: there is no attribute "src" 30there is no attribute "menu" 30there is no attribute "quality" 30there is no attribute "wmode" 30there is no attribute "scale" 30there is no attribute "bgcolor" 30there is no attribute "width" 30there is no attribute "height" 30there is no attribute "type" 30there is no attribute "pluginspage" 30element "embed" undefined 30 I tried Amara helpdesk but they didn't bother getting back.I also tried flash support Adobe...no response either. The errors seem to relate to DOCTYPE but I thought all was correct with mine: <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd"> Any ideas anyone? Any thoughts? ***SOLVED***With the help of Menno at Amara I deleted the generated code that the app gave and used INSERT media SWF in DW.All validates lovely now and I also don't get an annoying error everytime I open an html file for my site in DW.
