This example illustrates the use of the name attribute with Macromedia Flash Player.
The codeBase attribute of the object tag is missing from this example. You can check the version of the user's Flash player with this attribute in Internet Explorer, and if it does not exist or its version is lower than required, the browser pops up an installation dialog. Unfortunately the use of the codeBase attribute causes problems in Firefox. See the codeBase attribute for details.
<object data="flash.swf" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="300px" height="200px"
        <!-- If flash player is not installed, pluginurl helps the user to download it in Firefox -->
    <param name="pluginurl" value="" />
    <param name="movie" value="flash.swf" />  
    <param name="bgcolor" value="#FFFFE0" />  
    <param name="quality" value="high" />
