document type does not allow element "noscript" here

Can anyone help me please!

I'm currently validating a page to W3C and it's coming up with 1 error: document type does not allow element "noscript" here; missing one of "object", "applet", "map", "iframe", "button", "ins", "del" start-tag

After doing some investigating it seams that I cannot embed a flash image within a <p> element. I've searched the net but cannot find an answer as to how to resolve this issue, does anyone know if there is a fix to this or can tell me what i've done wrong?

This is the code:

What is your document type set to?

Go to the very top of the source.

Do you have anything like this?

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">

Post what you have.

You need to wrap the script in CDATA . . . it's easy to find, I won't show you how, because you should really look into SWFObject [code.google.com] to deploy your flash. Take a half hour to understand how it works, you'll have an accessible alternate content document in about ten minutes and it will validate just fine.
