Hello, while I am not new to web design, I am new to developing an XHTML 1.0 Strict site using divs and not tables. I am trying to revamp my website to use this, and it is proving a challenge making it compliant in Firefox, IE 6, and IE 7.

Currently, I am up against adding a Flash 9 movie to my site, and get it to show properly in Firefox and IE. It does show up. However, it makes the div double the size, pushing the movie down and leaving a large block of empty area.

Also, I would like to know a good way to make this validate as W3's validator does not like the <no script> tags it seems within the container div of the movie.

I have looked for several days on the Internet for similar issues, and have found none. Several of your articles on here have answered my questions before without me having to post, so I am hoping that someone will be able to help me now.

Code for the page:

Hi Sreekanth. The Javascript file was attatched before I posted this thread and shows on line 15-16 of the code in my first post.

I have done some editing to my code and got the movie to position correctly by making the div containing the flash code be positioned -200px. and making its background transparent. However, in Firefox it will still show the additional area above the movie if you right click.

The main question I have is why is it doubling the height of my movie, with a blank spot 200px above the actual movie.
