  •  And the WTF is?

    Ok, it could probably have been done more efficient, but it does what it does do and it's clear what it does, what more do you want?

    They have a "you need javascript enabled <font color="#808080">[and latest version of <blah>]</font>" message that is displayed only if you have javascript enabled?

    I'm presuming there is no message whatsoever if javascript is not enabled.

    Also (guessing from the function name) they probably have a div with a still shot of the video and it loads the flash player when you click on it.  And only then will you know that you didn't have an up-to-date flash player.

    The WTF is they improperly used HTML elements. They used </p><p> in the middle of the sentence instead of <br />
