Bug for: ColdFusion Flash generated HTML is not valid. The following summary and steps-to-reproduce info is based on #75158, but edited for CF-Flash:

When using ColdFusion's built-in Flash features, you're unable to validate your site as XHTML Strict!!! It would be nice, if the ColdFusion generated JavaScript would be either placed in a separate file (cfflash.js or so) or will be wrapped with CDATA comments! Valid source code is a MUST HAVE for usability and accessibility!

This bug is marked "1 - Critical (Totally prohibits use of product)" (where 'product' refers to CF Flash features) based on the fact that if valid source code is a requirement, then CF Flash features, as currently implemented, cannot be used.

Related thread:

Create a site and use some CF Flash like <cfform format="flash" and try to validate it here: using XHTML 1.0 Strict Doctype!

Run \\blrfs04\builds\coldfusion\Bugs\75878\bug75878.cfm
Copy markup from view-source into using the "direct input" option
Click "More options" and select Xhtmh 1.0 strict

+1 vote. I agree that this pretty much prevents the use of this area of functionality. A lot of people consider standards compliance to be sacrosanct. -- Adam

This also needs to be expanded for PNG/Image as well...

Also, <embed> is not valid, and needs to be removed from the CF-generated HTML.
