    Looks good to me, I'll skip the rant about search engine optimization.

    Good to see a flash site that doesn't seem to think, "because it's flash, I must put music on this site." :p

    Maybe the font a tad bigger?

    Nice layout. Clean. Very crisp with ample white space. But, I would up the font. Not everyone's 20 years old or have 20/20 vision :) Seriously, up the font one px.

    I'll try increasing the font size on the page content a bit.
    I definitely agree with this observation.

    For SEO, I'll paste keywords, links to other sites, etc... within the html.
    This content won't display on the page as long as the client has javascript enabled, but search engines will still be able index the site.


    thanks guys

    Am I supposed to see the content only on the top 30% of the browser?

    I see this in firefox 2.0 and IE8 on MS Vista Ultimate.

    Not sure what's going on there.
    The html page validates in DreamweaverCS3 with and W3C with no errors.
    (including Firefox 2.0)

    IE8 might not be completely compatible with Flash at this point.
    (the issue in your screenshot looks like an html/css alignment issue; the swf should be centered in the window)

    here's the code for the html page:
    Code:
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
    <!-- saved from url=(0014)about:internet -->
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en">
    <head>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
    <title>Mail Solutions & More</title>
    <!-- SWFObject embed by Geoff Stearns geoff@deconcept.com http://blog.deconcept.com/swfobject/ -->
    <script type="text/javascript" src="swfobject.js"></script>
    <style type="text/css">
    	
    	body {
    		background-color: #333333;
    		font: .8em/1.3em verdana,arial,helvetica,sans-serif;
    		height: 100%;
    		margin: 0;
    		padding: 0;
    	}
    	
    </style>
    </head>
    <body>
    
    	<div id="flashcontent">
    		<strong>You need to upgrade your Flash Player</strong>
    	</div>
    
    	<script type="text/javascript">
    		// <![CDATA[
    		
    		var so = new SWFObject("practice_31a.swf", "practice_31a", "100%", "100%", "9.0.28", "#333333");
    		so.addParam("scale", "noscale");
    		so.useExpressInstall('expressinstall.swf');
    		so.write("flashcontent");
    		
    		// ]]>
    	</script>
    </body>
    </html>

    I don't have a PPC flash plugin. Just a Universal version of it.

    Thanks for finding this problem.
    It's probably an issue with the swf embedding and flash express installation scripts.
    I'll work on it and post an update later.

    thanks again.
