Adding Flash media

You can insert Flash SWF files (*.swf file extension) into a web page in Microsoft Expression Web by using either the Toolbox panel or the Insert menu.

You can also insert this and other types of media by typing code in the Code view of the web page. For information on the current web standards for adding media files to web pages, see the heading "Generic inclusion: the OBJECT element" in the topic Objects, Images, and Applets Ee371171.xtlink_newWindow(en-us,Expression.40).png on the World Wide Web Consortium.

NoteNote

When you open a web page that contains other media types, you may receive a warning that the page contains an unknown or unsigned ActiveX control. For more information, see Security and ActiveX controls.
