    Hello All. Happy Halloween!
    I've recently updated my Blog with new 3 columns style from scratch and now I can not trouble shoot this problem I ran into. I can see my banner on Firefox fine BUT not for IE. I can hear the music but not the graphic. My banner/logo is a Flash file.
    On my wp-layout looks like this:
    #header {
    background: url(wp-images/logos/logouo.swf) no-repeat;
    margin: 0px 0;
    padding: 0px;
    height: -55px;
    text-align: center;
    background: #008CD2;
    font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;
    It seems like it doesn't work. I manually had to insert the Object line onto my index.php:
    <object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,29,0" width="769" height="100">
    <param name="movie" value="wp-images/logos/logouo1.swf" />
    <param name="quality" value="high" />
    <embed src="wp-images/logos/logouo1.swf" quality="high" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="769" height="100"></embed>

    This is sort of becoming my trademark response here, but if you can get you XHTML to validate ( http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.forceforge.com%2Fwp%2Findex.php ), you should be able to check and see what's wrong with your CSS by pasting your site URL here: http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/

    Ok, I've cleaned up all the extras and it's validated!
    Still my banner is not working. Looks like more works up ahead. Thank you for all the replies!

    Now I can get normal image like Jpg, Png, Gif to display but not Swf [flash]. I had it working once before. I'm just troubleshooting.

    Ok it seems the only way to make it to shows on both IE and Firefox is to add the Flash directly into Index.php . But I ran into Validation issues. Now what? Oh.

    And the CSS validated after you got the XHTML to validate as well? Honestly, IE is the root of all evil.

    Yes CSS validated with zero errors. Only XHTML was not validate for my flash object and nothing else.

    OK now they both are lined up but I ran into another problem. The left menu can ONLY be viewed on Firefox BUT not IE. I'm doom!
