A Fly in the Ointment: Object Failures

Regretfully, after the article was published, another problem was discovered. Instead of the embedded Flash content, some visitors saw a blank text area [12.11, 12.12]. This happened mainly in IE/Windows browsers (5, 5.5, and 6), although most IE/Windows users were able to view the Flash content as expected. Similar problems were reported with Konqueror and Mozilla in Linux. As with the IE6 float bug described earlier in this chapter, the object bug affected an unknown percentage of users.

12.11. The Satay method uses 100% valid markup to embed Flash content, but it can fail mysteriously in some browsers, as it does here in Mozilla (SuSE Linux 8.0), even with Flash installed [12.12] (http://www.alistapart.com/stories/flashsatay/).
