    does this work with an FTP website, cos i don't have mobile me, and therefore no iDisk, and I don't want to fork out the cash for it!!!! So is there a way of editing the code for non-iDisk users????? does the HTML widget work without Mobile Me?

    You could always just export your page to a folder and edit by hand from there.

    Easy way to add Flash to iWeb
    Flash SWF and FLV Files in iWeb
    Create a folder in your "iDisk/Web/Sites folder".
    Name it "flash".
    Copy mediaplayer.swf file into the newly created iDisk folder flash. this is a media player which will provide a player menus for movie
    Copy YourFlash.swf file into the newly created iDisk folder flash.
    Go to the page where you want the file to play.
    Copy the code below.

    <embed src="http://web.mac.com/Your_iDisk/flash/mediaplayer.swf"
    width="320"
    height="240"
    allowscriptaccess="always"
    allowfullscreen="true"
    flashvars="width=320&height=240&autostart=true&rep eat=true&file=http://web.mac.com/Your_iDisk/flash/YourFlash.swf" />


    Select HTML Snippet from the Insert menu.
    Paste the code in the HMTL Snippet
    Alter your idisk name... and name of the SWF file in the code.

    http://web.mac.com/Your_iDisk/flash/mediaplayer.swf is a mediaplayer which will provide a palyer menu such as play and stop buttons.
    320 is a Width of your flash file
    240 is a Height of your flash file
    http://web.mac.com/Your_iDisk/flash/YourFlash.swf is a Your iDisk, name of your new folder (flash), and name of your flash SWF or FLV file.
    autostart=true is a autostart option, you can disable them by setting to autostart=false
    repeat=true is repeat option allows you to repeat movie, you can disable them by setting to autostart=false

    Click “Apply” and save your page.
    Publish it and enjoy.

    Not meaning to hijack the thread too much, but as we've progressed to talking about putting HTML 5 code in one's iWeb website, if anyone here knows of a HTML5 based AUDIO player that's available for embedding, I'd love to know about it. Thanks.

    Shouldn't need one. Just set the controls attribute for the audio tag. See here.

    You can define multiple sources for the audio tag. See here. As per that article, if you have an mp3 and ogg named "hello", you could include the following (changing the path of course):
    Code:
    <audio controls preload>
        <source src="hello.ogg" />
        <source src="hello.mp3" />
    </audio>
    Once IE9 is released, all browsers will have support for HTML5 audio and thus, you should have no problem. While you may not be able to reach IE now, you will soon. From what I've read, IE9 will support MP3 and AAC.
