    Question HTML Degredation

    First I'm new at this, so be gentle....

    I've been researching degradation a little, and have followed some advice on it, but it still doesn't help with my problem.

    This is my problem:
    On my main page, part of the logo is an animated java applet, so it doesn't show up on all browsers, especially if someone doesn't even have java installed, also, the navigation bar is a flash, and of course, if the browser does't support it or if the user has never downloaded the flash player, it doesn't show up.

    This is what I want to do:
    I want to keep what I have, but I want a small gif (with an alternate text for text browsers) to show up in place of the java applet if it's not supported, and I want to do the same with the flash, with alternate text links for those who don't have flash or are on a text browser.

    You will see some degradation already in the code, but I've tested it on Red Hat with Mozilla, and the Java doesn't get replaced, nor does the flash.

    Here is my code:

    Any suggestions?

    Active-X also needs to be enabled for that page. Sounds like a JavaScript need to me.

    Use the ALT= attribuite inside the<IMG ...> tag for alternative display text and try placing the flash image inside a table of the exact same size with BORDER=0 and a BACKGROUND= image that's the alternative image desired - it should also be the exact same size as the flash image, of course.

    java, flash, and worst of all active-x, sounds like a reading of the link below may be helpful.

    Is that one reason why the red X in a box shows on my site? Or does the red X show because of strong firewall and other security measures? They only show on the affiliates that I have on my site. The other links show don't show the problem. It drives me nuts and I wish I could fix it.
