Currently when the Flash Player is not installed only a space is displayed. I wanted to display something a little nicer.

The functinality is already there in SWFObject is is simply a matter of changing the "nbsp;" in the right places.

to do this I added the following variable at the top of /js/jawstats.js.

var altswf = '\n' +
'\n' +
'This content requires the latest version of Flash\n' +
'\n' +
'Download the free Flash Player now!\n' +
'\n' +
'\n' +

Then I searched for all instances of graph as a whole word in the same document. I replaced the |nsbp;| in the div tag with |"+altswf+"|

of course altswf can be replaced with anything you want.
