Or Safari, Mozilla, IE Mac, and Camino.
The reason is because MSIE proprietary code has been used to load the
flash file. The "embed" tag should be used. This cross-browser code can
be generated by Flash's HTML export function.

Actually, it is flash... if your browser supports it . The key here
however, is that the site degrades gracefully. They have a second
version of their navigation in pure HTML so that the site is still
navigable with browsers that do not support flash (or any graphics for
that matter) . For example, the site is equally navigable in Lynx as
it is in Firefox. Compare the difference between the site using the
flash version  and the DHTML version .
