You can generate basic code using Aftershock that works the same as the
basic sample code, you just have to check the correct boxes.
See my articles and link to MM Tech Notes:

I'm not getting Flash with Netscape 3 or 4 using Win 95.

If you select the Gif alternative, browsers (such as Mac IE oe IE Win
3.1) that can not detect the plugin with JavaScript will get the Gif
alternate image.

It is best not to put JavaScript inside of Tables because of problems
with Netscape 3. The workaround is to document write the whole table or
table cell.
Also nested tables are a problem for Flash.

Check and make sure you are using Aftershock 2.0 and reorganize the page
without Flash in the table and recreate the page with Aftershock or
basic code.
Sometimes Aftershock generates incorrect code that is fixed just by
redoing it.
