    browsers?

    I created a banner for a client without taking into consideration compadability. It's a 6k swf file that will be embedded into a html page of course.

    Do most of the browsers today have the ability to open swf's like IE?

    I don't want to convert this thing to a GIF...

    Let me know.
    2.08Ghz AMD Athalon XP - 333Mhz FSB - 2.02Gb RAM - DUAL 19" Flat Screen (Graphics Series)

    I think you've overlooked the fact the browser has to have Flash player installed.
    Cheers

    yes, as long as there is a flash player/plugin installed all the common browsers (IE, Mozilla, Opera, Safari etc) should be able to view it. if the banner is a simple animation, that doesn't require any flash MX scripting, you might want to adjust the codebase attribute in the html (object tag) so it doesn't prompt IE users to download a newer player (assuming they don't already have flash 6) eg change the

    6,0,0,0 (which prompts anyone with a player prior to flash 6 to download a new player)

    to

    5,0,0,0 (does the same thing but now tests for flash 5 player)
