I tried the site with Firebird with no problems at all.
Can anybody check the site again?
I think this bug could be closed as fixed!

I still see black areas using Firefox 0.8 and suite 1.6, they now use Flash
instead of Schockwave, but the problem is still there

The URL for the original problem resulted in a 404 for me. I'm changing the URL
to one that works and exhibits the problem. The two other sites listed,
<> and <>, don't seem to be a
problem. However, I did encounter the same problem at and opened bug 250296.

They seem to have fixed the problem by putting an <embed> tag inside the <object> tag. Please comment if there are any further problems with Shockwave content on the site.
