Hi there,

I'm really strugling to find a simple answer to some validation errors I'm currently having, I've spend the past 2 hours searching Google and various forums but still I don't understand how to fix the issues I have.

The following issues i'm getting are:

Line 71, Column 28: there is no attribute "src"
Line 71, Column 60: there is no attribute "width"
Line 71, Column 73: there is no attribute "height"
Line 71, Column 84: there is no attribute "loop"
Line 71, Column 100: there is no attribute "quality"
Line 71, Column 119: there is no attribute "pluginspage"
Line 71, Column 210: there is no attribute "type"
Line 71, Column 241: element "embed" undefined

The code thats coming up with the error is:

<object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=9,0,28,0" width="772" height="104" title="Welcome">
<param name="movie" value="logos/welcomebanner.swf" />
<param name="quality" value="high" /><param name="LOOP" value="false" />
<embed src="logos/welcomebanner.swf" width="772" height="104" loop="false" quality="high" pluginspage="http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/download.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"></embed>
</object>

I'm really sorry if this question has been answered mulitple times but i'm having some trouble finding the solution. I understand the issue has something to do with the </embed> piece but I don't fully know what I need to do to correct the matter.

I've also read up on the 'Satay' theory but don't fully understand how to resolve this issue still....

Can anyone help me please?

Thanks,

James.

Look up swfobject. It's validation friendly.
