I'm designed my first page ever for my parents restaurant in flash and embedded the text. It loads great in Mozilla but people on the latest versions of IE have reported they can't see any text. I'm not sure if the problem is in flash or in the html and if anybody has encountered this problem before or can tell me where to go to fix it, it would be much appreciated.

Here's the html:
<TITLE>My Cafe of Example County </TITLE>
<META NAME="Description" CONTENT="">
<META NAME="Keywords" CONTENT="">

<!-- your old TITLE tag: <title>Untitled Document</title> -->
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
<link href="style.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="favicon.ico" >

<body topmargin="0" bottommargin="0" rightmargin="0" leftmargin="0" background="images/back_main.jpg">
<table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0" align="center">
<td valign="top" width="766" height="700"><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="766" height="700">
<param name="movie" value="main.swf">
<param name="quality" value="high">
<embed src="main.swf" quality="high" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="766" height="700"></embed>

Hello, you do not have any text within the HTML itself, so it must be in the Flash file. If it doesn't work, then the people's browser may not have the right version of the Flash plugin.

Tell them to try updating the browser plugin from Macromedia. :)

Thank you so much. That did the trick in my IE at home. One last question- where would I write in html to tell people if they're not seeing text, please download flash?
