    hiding the placeholder

    im trying to replace swf with a static jpg if the viewer does not have flash installed ................so far its been ok table with background of the static image and the swf positioned on top ......this shows the graphic no problem ................only thing is you can still see the place holder for the swf e.g the little white box with a red x inside it ( like for an image that isnt there ) anyone any ideas on how to get rid of this ?

    A better way would be to only show the flash if the user has the plugin and only show the image if the user hasn't. It can be done using JavaScript. There are other ways of detecting the flash plugin and taking action based on that. Search for "detecting flash plugin" and you'll find many ways.
