This tutorial will show you how to insert Flash SWF file
to HTML page in Microsoft Expression Web.
Microsoft Expression Web HTML editor does not have a method
to insert Flash SWF to HTML page automatically, it requires
you to copy and paste the HTML code into the code section
of your HTML page manually.
Firstly, please generate Flash SWF file with your Flash maker
software, for example, Aleo
Flash Intro Banner Maker at http://www.aleosoft.com
Secondly, please copy or save the SWF file to your website
directory. You need to place the SWF file to the same
directory as your HTML file which you want to
embed the Flash.
Launch Microsoft Express Web, open the HTML file which you
want to insert the Flash. In the left bottom of the editor

click the yellow alert bar on top of the web page, and select
"Allow Blocked Content", otherwise,
the Flash will not display. This only happens when you are
viewing web page from local computer, when viewing online,
the yellow alert bar will not appear.
- If the Flash does not appear and you only view a blank
area, that's because you do not place the Flash SWF file
into the right directory, and the HTML page can not find
the SWF file. You need to place the Flash SWF to the same
