You likely would want target="#myMedia" instead.
Also, wouldn't javascript be able to acquire the <object> object then call
myMedia.data = "animation1.swf" to change that object? This assumes setting
the 'data' attribute causes the object to be notified & it would then
re-load. Or maybe it's getting the object implementors to code this up that
is the problem?
