    If that is the EXACT code from your page, then you forgot to close some tags. For example you have:
    <CENTER
    when you should have:
    <CENTER>
    IE is forgiving and will close tags for you. Netscape is not.

    BTW it doesn't work in Netscape Communicator 4.7 either.

    Use this exact code:

    <CENTER>
    <OBJECT classid="clsid27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000"
    codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=5,0,41,0" ID=home WIDTH=100% HEIGHT=100%>

    <PARAM NAME=movie VALUE="Coming soon.swf">
    <PARAM NAME=quality VALUE=high>
    <PARAM NAME=bgcolor VALUE=#000000>
    <PARAM NAME=scale VALUE=exactfit>
    <PARAM NAME=play VALUE=true>
    <EMBED src="Coming soon.swf" quality=high scale=exactfit play=true bgcolor=#000000 WIDTH=100% HEIGHT=100% swLiveConnect=false TYPE="application/x-shockwave-flash"
    PLUGINSPAGE="http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/download/index.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash">
    </EMBED>
    </OBJECT>
    </CENTER>

    Also, its generally a good idea not to use spaces in a url, i would rename "coming soon.swf" to "coming_soon.swf"

    Most broswers will still work with spaces, but old ones and linux box's dont like them. Does you movie work when you watch it one your hard drive?
