    If your not using a plugin, may I recommend trying a different method of embeding - try this:

    <object type="application/x-shockwave-flash data="YOURMOVIE.swf"
    width="600" height="300">
    <param name="movie"
    value="YOURMOVIE.swf" />
    <!-- OPTIONAL<img src="noflash.gif"
    width="200" height="100" alt="" /> OPTIONAL-->
    </object>

    The optional part is an image that represents what you want shown incase they don't have flash or whatever.

    It's hard to help when we don't know wether your using a plugin or not.

  7. So, thesuperstar, you just manually type that code and paste it into your post, and there are absolutely no WordPress plugins involved in with the use of Flash in your post? An answer to the question in "Yes" or "No" format would be greatly appreciated.

    Perhaps it's cause it's rapped in <pre> & <code>

    it's wrapped in code tags!

    <code><object classid=clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000
    codebase=http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=5,0,2,0
    width=600
    height=300>

    <param name=movie value=christmassnow.swf>
    <param name=quality value=high>
    <param name=BGCOLOR value=#000000>
    <param name=SCALE value=showall>
    <embed src=christmassnow.swf
    quality=high
    pluginspage=http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/download/index.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash type=application/x-shockwave-flash
    width=600
    height=300
    bgcolor=#000000
    scale= showall>
    </embed>
    </object></code>

    If your using 2.0 with rich text editor, click on the HTML button and insert it there. That hopefuly should avoid it being wrapped in tags.
