What are the pages that do not validate?
There are really only two valid ways to embed swf in HTML:
1) Use the object tag, as the html-object responder does
enabled or for XHTML pages that do not support document.write. This
works poorly in IE6 because it will not activate the object until it
is fully loaded.
2) Use LzEmbed
This will validate, because there is no object or embed tag in the
page source it is dynamically added by the LxEmbed script.
So, depending on the purpose of the pages that do not validate, it
would be nice to choose one or the other of these methods. Unless
the purpose of the page is to explicitly show how to create an
invalid (but works well for IE) page. It is also possible that the
pages that do not validate are obsolete and should just be deleted.
