Might be worth noting that the technique described in that article doesn't work in win IE5.0 - specifically on Win2K with no service packs - the flash doesn't show up at all. To get it to work I eventually had to do this: <!--[if IE 5]> <object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" id="flash" width="750" height="245" > <![endif]--> <![if ! IE 5]> <object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="home.swf" id="flash" width="750" height="245" > <![endif]> <param name="movie" value="home.swf" /> Which is ridiculous I know, and it gets worse - inverse conditional comments (by which I mean, NOT conditions) don't work properly in IE5.0 either - they do actually work, but the closing <![endif]> shows up as literal text on the page, so you have to surround the object in a DIV or something and set its text colour the same as your background!
