Hi,

One of my sites as a header Flash element which contains the logo. I have a noscript tag set up for anyone/thing not using javascript, since the flash element is written to the page via some javascript. The noscript content displays the replacement static image absolutely fine on browsers but Google's preview displays nothing. Anyone else having issues like this? Any ideas?

That's the way things currently are with Preview. Flash doesn't display and <noscript> is ignored.

I'd say it looks silly on Google's end, not ours.

We all have to put on our Google hats and realize they have decided that they control the Internet and will do as they please and us measly webmasters just need to fall in line ;)

Wait! I does look silly on Google's end, what the heck was I thinking. I must have it confused with the other 20 or so changes they made this month.

Very silly indeed, but we all do silly things, don't we?

I've made some css changes and opted for a background image instead of noscript. Hopefully that will solve it...
