    Unhappy ok.. can anyone tell me why i can't see this?


    i'm running IE 5.5 and for some reason all i see is the shockwave logo..
    others have opened it fine in netscape.. is this a browser or html problem? would appear to be related to IE...

    i can see it. all i can think is maybe you don't have the plugin for some strange reason. which version of flash did you export it as. if it's flash 5 check and see if you have the plugin for flash 5 installed for explorer.

    Well it would appear that I do have the plugin.. i am able to view other sites using flash 5 fine..and can see all the flashes on macromedia's site.. is there a way to specifically check if I have it installed? Would seem funny that I can have dreamweaver, fireworks and flash 5 all installed but not the plugin? (wouldn't surprise me though.. lol) I'm not sure what it exported as, as I used Dreamweaver (total flash newbie here).

    Thanks,
    milady

    yeah.. i can't see it using WinMe/IE5.5 but i can using WinMe/NS4.76? ugh! html anger here..lol

    could it be the embed code?
    i saw something somewhere that said...

    I'm not sure why MS specifies the code attribute for the embed element. Typically, a code attribute points to a java class filename. In theory, an applet could be loaded into a document via the embed element (rather than the applet or object element), but this approach does not work in IE4, nor does the codebase element help the browser find a java applet class filename assigned to the src attribute. My recommendation is to avoid this attribute.

    then about codebase..

    As with the code attribute IE4 seems to ignore the codebase attribute for the embed element, despite its apparent support in the SDK (??) documentation. The src attribute must contain the path to the data file because it does not rely on the codebase attribute value. My recommendation is to avoid this attribute.


    my head hurts.. lol

    Thanks,
    milady

    A longshot, but have you tried adding a <base> tag in the head of your html code:
    ie
    Code:
    <HTML>
    <HEAD>
    <BASE href="http://mekong.connections.yk.ca/mil.../Untitled-1.htm">
    ?

    Longshot like I say but I've had weird problems with various browsers when using relative filenames. Speaking of which alternatively you could just put the full path to the swf file and see if that works:
    Code:
    <param name="src" value="http://mekong.connections.yk.ca/milady/Test/ibew2.swf">
    Good luck!
