xhtml & flash

I created a very simple welcome page with xHtml transitional.

I tried to get a flash with:
<object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000"
codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,40,0"
width="500" height="500" >
<param name="MOVIE" value="main.swf"/>
<param name="PLAY" value="true"/>
<param name="LOOP" value="true"/>
<param name="QUALITY" value="high"/>
<embed src="main.swf" width="500" height="400" play="true" loop="true"
wmode="opaque" quality="high" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"
pluginspace="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer">
</embed>
</object>

But since embed is depricated in xhtml I search over on how to make it
play on firefox and saw this: http://alistapart.com/articles/flashsatay

So I altered my obect to:
<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="main.swf"
codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,40,0"
width="500" height="500" >
<param name="MOVIE" value="main.swf"/>
<param name="PLAY" value="true"/>
<param name="LOOP" value="true"/>
<param name="QUALITY" value="high"/>
</object>

But still doesn't play in FF. In IE is ok. Any help?

Good idea to state in the first sentence that you are clueless.

You've seen the article, now try _reading_ it. Your 2nd example
differs from the Satay approach in at least 3 important ways.
