The classid and codebase attributes are required for the Internet Explorer ActiveX plug-in
and must be included verbatim — with one exception. Note the version number at the end of the
codebase attribute. This is the minimum version of the Flash Player required to play the content.
As of this writing, the most current version is 10.1 — which would be described in the codebase
attribute as 10,1,0,0 . (For whatever reason, the codebase attribute uses commas rather than
periods to separate version numbers.) In the <embed> tag, the type and pluginspage attributes
are unique to Flash Player content.
Designed properly, SWF animations blend seamlessly into the web page as shown in Figure 23-4.
The Traced Bird Skateboard Wheels logo — complete with spinning multi-colored wheels — is an
SWF file inset with the preceding code example.
