    Exclamation Embeded Flash header not showing!

    Hello.

    I have this flash header that I am trying to put in a simple webpage. I have embeded flash this way countless times, and it worked perfectly.

    When this happened I immediately thought, "The path to the flash file must be incorrect!" So I changed it from a relative to an absoute path, didn't work. Then I put the flash in the same directory as the HTML, didn't work. So the path to the file does not seem to be the problem.

    I load all my flashes through an external JavaScript with document.write .... because it cures the new activation border around flash in IE. But I have done this many times and it has worked before.

    I thought maybe it was a bug with the way I nested my divs, so I put my div containing my flash in the body. That didn't work either, so I put it back. I search here and google for "flash not showing" but the search was too broad. So I decided to post. I'm confident there is a simple solution to this, but being a beginner I can't seem to figure this out.

    Here is my codes.

    Code:
    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="effects.css" />
    
    </head>
    
    <body>
    
    <div class="container">
    	<div class="header">
    		<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript" src="flashbanner.js"></script>
    	</div>
    	<div class="main">
    		<p>Lorem Ipsum test</p>
    	</div>
    	<div class="footer">
    		<a href="../../../index2.html">
    		<img src="image1.jpg" alt="" border="0" />
    		<img src="image2.jpg" alt="" border="0" />
    		</a>
    	</div>
    </div>
    I have no CSS for this div. But here is the simple self-described JavaScript to call the flash.

    Code:
    document.write('<object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" codebase="http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=8,0,0,0" width="248" height="400" id="xanadu" align="middle"><param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain" /><param name="movie" value="../../flashes/xanadu.swf" /><param name="wmode" value="transparent"><param name="quality" value="high" /><param name="bgcolor" value="#000000" /><embed src="../../flashes/xanadu.swf" quality="high" wmode="transparent" bgcolor="#000000" width="248" height="400" name="xanadu" align="middle" allowScriptAccess="sameDomain" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" /></object>');
    I guess if you got to this point I should thank you for reading my post. If you can help I would appreciate it.

    Thanks again,

    Jeremy

    I thought I would be nice and let the forum know I found a solution to my problem

    I was frustrated over this last night. My advice is to never code anything when frustrated. If you look at the end of my document.write statement, I used a "}" instead of a ")".

    Thanks,

    Jeremy
