Theodore from powerSDK has found a very elegant workaround for the upcoming Eolas related IE-Update. Unfortunately you cannot add comments to his blog, so I will add my comments here:
- I've tested the proposal and in order to sastisfy the patent restrictions all you have to remove is the <PARAM name="movie" value="xyz.swf> and the src="xyz.swf" inside the EMBED tag. You can leave all the rest of the OBJECT block in place, wow!
which you should better place behind the OBJECT block inside the HTML code.
But anyway - this is definitely a brilliant way to do it. Cheers Theodore!
