Netscape does not use the Active-X control, just a plug-in. I cannot
determine, though, if IE can use the plug-in or if it MUST use the Active-X
control. There is a technote at MM site about how to remove the ActiveX
control..you could do that, then run some tests...

some people at the Pentagon being unable to view the site. After some
research I found out from one of the Network folks there:
> "FLASH player is an ActiveX control.
> All ActiveX controls are blocked by the OSD Firewalls. This by direction
of a Secretary of Defense policy regarding mobile code. Unfortunately this
restriction cannot be lifted."
> Is this true (that Flash is an Active X Control)? I knew that the <object>
tag forced IE into Active X to view Flash movies, but I did not know Flash
in general was contingent on Active X across browsers.
