Using the method described on A List Apart to get Flash to validate it 
seems to work on my windows pc for both IE and Firefox.  On my Linux pc 
I get a strange behavior in Firefox.  It will load, and momentarily 
display the box where the video is, then it disappears, but the space 
remains occupied and only the video controls display.  You can see tell 
the video plays as the marker in the scroll rule is moving.  This is a 
very short video.

This video was encoded in Flash encoder then was created in Flash 8.  Is 
this a problem with the browser on linux or a problem with the flash movie?
