I got this code to display flash with the minimum amount of code.

<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="flash/foo.swf" width="365" height="150">
<param name="movie" value="flash/foo.swf" /><img src="images/foo.jpg" width="365" height="150" alt="" /></object>

but when i use it, the flash appears 5px short, and seems to start from -5px on the left handside, so it is showing a part which should be hidden. The really strange thing is that when I use publish preview code generated by flash, it display correctly.

Any ideas, what is wrong with the above code.

I'm not exactly clear about what you're saying, but check if you aren't publishing from a symbol. That would explain the displacement.
