I'm wondering if there's a way to show the flash animation if the user has flash installed, but if no flash is detected, to show a .GIF image in place of the .SWF?
It is important that the .GIF be showed in the same position/place on the page where the .SWF would be shown.
Anyone know to do this? :)
There is an excellent article on this here http://www.#*$!.com/articles/flashsatay/ it explains how to serve flash content and at the same time be XHTML compliant.
Furthermore, and this is were it gets interesting, it explains the cascading capacity of the <OBJECT> element were it will try to parse the next child element if it cant load the flash. That next element could be an image or text.
