Chapter 26. Flash and Shockwave > Adding Flash to a Web Page

26.4. Adding Flash to a Web Page

Flash movies are generally added to web pages using a combination of the <object> and <embed> tags with parameters and attributes for controlling display and playback. Both tags are used in order to accommodate the incompatibilities of Internet Explorer and Netscape Navigator. Internet Explorer on Windows uses the <object> tag, which enables it to automatically download the ActiveX controls for playing Flash media. Navigator (on Windows, Mac, Linux, and Solaris) and Internet Explorer on the Mac understand the <embed> element for Flash placement.

You can either generate the HTML using Flash's Publish feature or write it out by hand. This section takes a look at both methods.
