I am trying to help my son put together a website of games. Most are flash based and downloaded from other sites (they allow it!)

I have downloaded one game called square-divide.swf and uploaded it to my own webspace

The webpage he is trying to create is at <removed>

Unfortunately, all that shows is a white box - can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong? The code I'm using is....

<object width="550" height="400">
<param name="movie" value="http://www.example.info/adam/square-divide.swf">
<embed src="http://www.example.info/adam/square-divide.swf" width="550" height="400">

I would add that the 550 and 400 are not necesarily the size of the file - just the size I want it to be on the screen, I have read that this may have to be correct but I don't know the true sizes.
