I don't know why so many people are so fond of that gratuitous ALA published
method. Oh yeah, probably because of what I just discovered now: I can't
find the link to where I first got clued in to this method:

<object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000"
b#version=6,0,29,0" width="760" height="178">
	<param name="movie" value="banner.swf" />
	<param name="quality" value="high" />
	<!--[if !IE]> <-->
			<param name="quality" value="high" />
			<param name="bgcolor" value="#FFFFFF" />
			<param name="pluginurl"
value="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" />
	<!--> <![endif]-->

Works, validates, no need for a "shell movie" or any scripting. Just two
<object>s with different attributes. Conditional comments serve one to IE,
and the other to everybody else.

I really wish I could find the page for it though... :(
