Validating http://www.mayorsforkids.org/ 
Error [108]: "there is no attribute X" 

I find it highly unusual that it won't validate Flash embedding. 
Unfortunately, <embed> is still required by many browsers.  Their
answer, to use SATAY (http://validator.w3.org/docs/help.html#faq-flash AND http://alistapart.com/articles/flashsatay) is
pretty ridiculous, especially if you're only grabbing a YouTube or
user-created content (so that you can't edit the Flash file itself). 
This should be relegated to a warning, not an error.  Many pages will
be unable to be validated otherwise.
