  •  I think I know why those things happen. Flash can produce so-called html code to embed "movies" into a page. Since search engines are blind for flash menus, the problem with parts that are invisible to them has been solved by putting a list of used links in a commented section. One would argue that this is stupid, since it's in a comment and will be ignored anyway, but people tend to just copy and paste. This is what might happened in this case. I'm pretty sure at the bottom there is a flash form that is somehow similar to this list.

    There's a contact us form which is the real WTF: it has Name / E-mail / Company name / State / Phone number / Message fields. But these fields aren't labeled, the labels are written in the fields (with trailing colons) and disappear when you enter the fields.



    Except Phone number and State, they have to be deleted manually. Or probably they are meant to stay there, because the form does something like implode($_POST, "\n").



    Either way, once you've entered a field, you'd better remember what ought to go in there.



  •  I hate the "HTML" code that Flash itself creates. I neveruse that and instead use SWFObject to embed SWF files in my HTML - whether it is going to be full browser window or within other HTML elements.

    the Adobe uses SWFObject (modified though) to embed SWFs in HTML instead of the Flash generated "code" ...
