SWFObject is a better way to embed swf files in html. Its shorter than Adobe's AC_RunActiveContent, makes the flash file more compatible for other devices which use less advanced versions of javascript, and it degrades gracefully on ancient browsers.

Are you easily confused? Is your wmode not transparent even after checking it a hundred times over? Stop messing up the code and use the SWFobject code generator.

Working Example

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" lang="en" xml:lang="en">
		<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />
		<script type="text/javascript" src="swfobject.js"></script>
		<script type="text/javascript">
			swfobject.registerObject("quoteRotatored", "9.0.0");
<title>embed flash</title>
body {background:url(background.jpg); margin-left:0px; margin-top:0px}
.container { }
			<object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" width="200" height="250" id="quoteRotatored">
				<param name="movie" value="quoteRotatored.swf" />
				<param name="wmode" value="transparent" />
				<!--[if !IE]>-->
				<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="quoteRotatored.swf" width="200" height="250">
					<param name="wmode" value="transparent" />
				<!--[if !IE]>-->
