The problem is that your particular technique doesn't work for at least 
konqueror. It's probably better to use <object> tags as advertised by the 
W3C. While it doesn't work with very old browsers like NS 4, it should 
work with all modern ones, and is the advertised way of doing things.

No problem, the most important thing is that the website becomes 
"perfect". I don't mind that happening after the launch (as long as it 
doesn't suck), as long as it happens sometime. The current push is just 
because it is probably easier to do things right in the beginning than to 
fix it up after the fact.
