Maani provides a HTML snippet to embed its Flash movies. Unfortunately, this code prevents the page from validating. To get around this I used Drew McLellan’s Flash satay technique, minus the hack that re-enables streaming in IE/Windows (since the movies are quite small).
The Flash satay method removes a lot of the suggested markup, including:
classidattribute in the
objectelement (replaced with
codebaseattribute in the
objectelement (not replaced)
embedelement (since it is not part of the specification)
McLellan also recommends including replacement content as a child of the
object element, so I made some JPEG versions of the charts in their current state, and added them via an
img beneath the last
param tag in each
alt text in the image tags provides real data values for accessibility. The image also links to Adobe’s “get Flash” page.
