Flash accessibility test

OK, I figured out there was a small problem in my logic the other day with
regards to providing alternate content to screenreaders.

The way swfobject.js works is to detect Flash, and if it finds it, set the
alternate content to "display:none". As we know, this also hides it from the
screenreader. So I made an alteration to swfobject.js to move the content
off the page instead. Anyone care to test it out?


Note that this is just the first page and none of the links work yet.
