I have tried many approaches and have no luck. ANY help on this would be appreciated as I have been trying to get this to work for a week. I am no JS guy so please "be-gentle" but I like direct!

NOTE: I prefer not to use the SWFobject.js to load my SWFs

Approach ONE: Rewrite to get rid of comment tags.
Code:
<div id="myFlash">
 <!--<object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" width="1054" height="453" id="FlashID" title="mymovie">
                                <param name="movie" value="flash/banner.swf" />
                                <param name="quality" value="high" />
                                <param name="wmode" value="transparent" />
                                <param name="swfversion" value="8.0.35.0" />
                                        
                                <param name="expressinstall" value="Scripts/expressInstall.swf" />
                                        
                                        
        <object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="flash/banner.swf" width="1054" height="453">
                        
                        <param name="quality" value="high" />
                        <param name="wmode" value="transparent" />
                        <param name="swfversion" value="8.0.35.0" />
                        <param name="expressinstall" value="Scripts/expressInstall.swf" />
                        
          <div>
              <h4>Content on this page requires a newer version of Adobe Flash Player.</h4>
              <p><a href="http://www.adobe.com/go/getflashplayer"><img src="http://www.adobe.com/images/shared/download_buttons/get_flash_player.gif" alt="Get Adobe Flash player" /></a></p>
            </div>
           
          </object>
         
        </object>-->
        <script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
 
 
function reWriteFlash(){
 
var myHTML = document.getElementById("myFlash").innerHTML;
 
myHTML = myHTML.replace("<!--","");
 
myHTML = myHTML.replace("-->","");
 
document.getElementById("myFlash").innerHTML = myHTML;
 
}
 
</script>
</div>
Approach TWO: OnLoad ReWrite...

Code:
<script language="javascript">
<!--//hide

	//function to write in flash object when page loads.
	function writeFlash(){
		//place your flash object tags inside a variable
		// i'm gonna split it up a bit here, just for my own purposes of ledgability, and checking for errors... not really necessary.
		var flashOut='<OBJECT classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,0,0" WIDTH="550" HEIGHT="100" id="javascripttest" ALIGN="">';
		flashOut=flashOut+'<PARAM NAME=movie VALUE="javascripttest.swf">';
		flashOut=flashOut+'<PARAM NAME=quality VALUE=high>';
		flashOut=flashOut+'<PARAM NAME=bgcolor VALUE=#CC6600>';
		flashOut=flashOut+'<EMBED src="javascripttest.swf" quality=high bgcolor=#CC6600  WIDTH="550" HEIGHT="100" NAME="javascripttest" ALIGN="" TYPE="application/x-shockwave-flash" PLUGINSPAGE="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer">';
		flashOut=flashOut+'</EMBED></OBJECT>';
		//create a layer tag to place your flash object into, and to position your flash object
		//document.write("<layer name='flashLayer' top=300 left=100>"+flashOut+"</layer>");
		//the above didn't seem to work... so i'll try:
		//document.write("<layer name='flashLayer'>"+flashOut+"</layer>");
		//document.layer.flashLayer.top=500;
		//still no go... maybe try it wil div... and style:
		document.write("<div name='flashLayer' style='position:absolute; left:100px; top:300px;'>"+flashOut+"</div>");
		//this one seems to work in ie... but I have no way to control it and thr inline styles are going to reap havoc on my CMS.
