Under the Publish... menu, find the checkbox for "HTML" - check that - 
it will generate HTML for you.

Then find the option that says "detect for Flash X" where "X" is the 
version plugin you're checking for. Tyhen Publish!

You can open up the HTML file it creates and paste it into your HTML 
where you want it. You can also easily see where to put the static 
image you want.

You probably don't need to read this, but at one time, saying 
document.write() within a td caused a browser to crash - Netscape 3 
something, I believe ... the fix is to also document.write() the td /td.
