You need the URL of the swf file in the SRC attribute.

Try:

src="flashmovie.swf?<%response.write("&Question="+
Server.URLEncode(strQuestion))%>">

I don't recall seeing such a structure before. It's not HTML when
angle-brackets nest like that, but I presume that the inner tags are being
rewritten on the server before the document is delivered to the browsers.

A few tests:

-- When you "View Source" in the Netscape browsers then what do you see
that that browser is actually being given to render?

-- How does it do when you test in IE/Mac? (This also uses the EMBED, and
could help show where the divergence from expectation arises.)

-- Do the various browsers you're using have the same version of the Flash
Player?
