XHTML compliant inline quicktime movie?

Howard, John Gideon
I'm wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction. Given IE 6+ new requirement that a user must activate the ActiveX control, where can I find example code that is XHTML compliant, loads an inline quicktime movie, and does not require user interaction to start the movie. Thank You.

Simply load your movie externally instead of embedding it in-line like
you used to, some simple javascript works well:

in your xhtml:
<script type="text/javascript" src="/scripts/intro1.js"></script>

intro1.js:
document.write('<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash"
data="intro1.swf" height="62" width="672"><param name="movie"
value="intro1.swf" /><img alt="" src="images/intro1.gif" height="62"
width="672" /></object>')

More ways from Microsoft:
