Pure Css Layout With A Flash Header

Recommended Posts

I am wondering which is the best way to display a flash header with a pure css layout. This is the way that I have it now and it works fine but when I try to validate the code it will not validate.  I know that the td must be child of tr which must be a child of table. This means that it is not the right way. Any suggestions would be great.



The html:
[code]<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"
"http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">
<html>
<!-- DW6 -->
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
<title>Pure CSS Test Page</title>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="javascript:alert('test');" type="text/css">
</head>
<body>
<div id="master">
<div id="masthead">
      <td>
    <object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11CF-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,40,0" border="0" width="770" height="200">
        <param name="movie" value="../../images/header.swf">
        <param name="quality" value="High">
      <embed src="../images/header.swf" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" name="obj1" width="160" height="160"></object>
    </td>
  <div id="breadCrumb">
    <a href="#">breadcrumb</a> /
  </div>
</div> [/code]

What could I use instead of <td> . I know that I could create a table but I am trying to avoid tables where ever possible. Any suggestions would be great.

Just get rid of the td tags altogether. If you want to move the flash animation use CSS to move it.
