Problem with Macromedia Flash

Greetings,

  My name is Fernando Pires. I would like to know how can I 
validate the insertion of a Flash object in my document.
  When I embed the flash, the Validator say that there is none 
of the attributes, like "src", which is the main attribute, 
between many others.
  Example:

"Line 85, column 21: there is no attribute "src"

          <embed src="skadilogo.swf" quality="high" 
pluginspage="http://www.macr

You have used the attribute named above in your document, but 
the document type you are using does not support that 
attribute for this element. This error is often caused by 
incorrect use of the "Strict" document type with a document 
that uses frames (e.g. you must use the "Transitional" 
document type to get the "target" attribute), or by using 
vendor proprietary extensions such as "marginheight" (this is 
usually fixed by using CSS to achieve the desired effect 
instead). 

This error may also result if the element itself is not 
supported in the document type you are using, as an undefined 
element will have no supported attributes; in this case, see 
the element-undefined error message for further information. 

How to fix: check the spelling and case of the element and 
attribute, (Remember XHTML is all lower-case) and/or check 
that they are both allowed in the chosen document type, and/or 
use CSS instead of this attribute."

  I would like to know how am I supposed to fix this..
Thanks in advance.
