Playing Flash as "embed" Elements - Example

This section provides a tutorial example on how to play Flash files, .swf files, using 'embed' elements.

Flash data files, .swf files, can also be displayed in Web pages as <embed> elements. To show you how to include Flash data files using the "src" attribute in an "embed" element, I wrote the following tutorial example, embed_swf.html:

<html><body>
<!-- embed_swf.html

-->

<p>1. Flash with "embed[@src]":</p>
<table border="1" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
<tr><td>
<embed src="yahoo.swf"/>
</td></tr>
</table>

<p>2. Flash with "embed[@src and @width and @height]":</p>
<table border="1" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
<tr><td>
<embed src="yahoo.swf" width="217" height="85">
</td></tr>
</table>

<p>3. Flash with "embed[@src and @type and @width and @height]:</p>
<table border="1" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
<tr><td>
<embed src="yahoo.swf" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"
   width="100" height="100"/>
</td></tr>
</table>

</body></html>

In this example, I created 3 tests with 3 <embed> elements to test 4 attributes: "src", "type", "width" and "height":
