I've read the article that Tedster pointed someone to a year ago here [webmasterworld.com] about getting flash to validate. Now this is the alternative for larger movies-

<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>

I'm only loading flash buttons and so don't need the container movie. So does that mean that I can change my code to -

<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash
width="400" height="300">
<param name="movie"
value="movie.swf" />
<img src="noflash.gif"
width="200" height="100" alt="" />
</object>

It sure does! The only reason the container movie is required is to make IE start displaying the movie before it has loaded. But, if you're only using small files, then the display will be instantaneous anyway.

You still need the data in the object tag though:

<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash
width="400" height="300" data="movie.swf">
<param name="movie"
value="movie.swf" />
<img src="noflash.gif"
width="200" height="100" alt="" />
</object>

Cheers for that Dr Doc, sometimes I just don't trust myself to get things right.
