Flash over Menu: problem is the code validation

Hi

I want to validate my code.


I have fly-out menus that fly-out over a flash movie. At first, the flash layer covered the fly-out portion. I resolved the cover-up problem in the big 3 browsers (Chrome, IE, Firefox), and am happy with the outcome. However, the code validation says that the wmode="transparent" element is a problem.


Here is the code I am using. It works, but does not validate. The problem lies in the 'wmode' element. Using the 'transparent' value in both places, as shown below, gets the menu to fly-out properly in the big3 browsers. Using only one 'transparent' value works in 1 or 2 browsers but not all 3, but does not validate here either. What is the deal with the 'wmode', or how can I change the code to get it to validate?


<div>
<object classid="clsid27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" width="484" height="484" id="homemovie">
<param name="movie" value="flash/homemovie.swf" />
<param name="wmode" value="transparent">
<!--[if !IE]>-->
<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="flash/homemovie.swf" width="484" height="484" wmode="transparent">
<!--<![endif]-->

</a>
<!--[if !IE]>-->
</object>
<!--<![endif]-->
</object>
</div>

Please post in the appropriate product forum (Flash, Flex, ActionScript, etc.); this is the Flash Player forum.

And when you do, please use a normal font size; your post above is almost impossible to read!
