Impressive Flash Sites

Posted by jrosero on May 12, 2008

I found these pages from a site I included in my final project. They list some flash sites which are creative and are designed real well. As soon as the semester is over I think I might look at making something as interactive as one of these sites for fun.

Embedding Flash In A Strict Compliant Environment

Posted by CDowd on February 22, 2008

Ever use those little embed tags to post flash? Well, they’re not compliant.

I have to build a website for my MULT 109 class, and since I’m in WEBT I decided that I would try to make every page strict compliant. Then I got to my flash game page. What a nightmare!!!

Anyway, I did an exhaustive Google search for an answer, and I found these articles:

The third article is the one I finally went with. It was a bit of a bear, since it involves javascript, and CSS for layout, rather than just a simple cut and paste embed script, but wow it works!

Here’s my Valid XHTML 1.0 Strict webpage for proof. There are a  couple of CSS issues I’m still working on, but the page is valid, AND the flash works in both Firefox and IE. I think that’s worth a little extra credit. 😉
