Hi Myriam,

I've taken a look and don't see any Flash on the site here.

Also, that element is in a really strange place. The place where the
"no flash" elements are inserted shouldn't have anything there, as the
<header> element of the page should be the first element after <body>
(and your no flash elements are in between these).

Could you please check the original source your browser is being served?
