Default HTML Validation and embed tag issue

Hi, I am having a challenge trying to vailidate this page, would anyone know a fix to keep it html and be able to keep the slideshow?


A friend is trying to help me with this and asked me to post this

something like :
High School: i have this html code :
High School: <object classid="clsid27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=7,0,19,0" width="125" height="125" title="hair style slide show">
<param name="movie" value="../support-files/hair.swf">
<param name="quality" value="high">
<embed src="../support-files/hair.swf" quality="high" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="125" height="125">
No Java Support.

High School: and when i`m trying to validate on w3 it says : Line 382 column 197: element "EMBED" undefined.
High School: i`m using this doctype : <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
High School: and ask if anyone knows how can you validate the page with the embed object inside

Thank you

Hi thanks, I will read.

I found this and it seems to fix

> <object data="flash/mymovie.swf" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"
> width="325" height="240">
> <param name="movie" value="flash/mymovie.swf">
> </object>

Thanks for the look I appreciate it !
