><param name="movie" value="swf/header.swf?titleText=navigation&amp;sub=dig
>it!" />
><param name="wmode" value="transparent" />
        ^^^^^^^^^^^^

this is.

I do not know about that, but if Mozilla requires you to use improper
Markup you should probably note this http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/ in
their bug tracking system so they can fix such bugs (if any). There is
probably little we can do to help you here, if you think the <object>
element should allow a "wmode" attribute, you should suggest this to
the HTML Working Group, see <http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/#forums>.
