How to get the click event on sIFR embedded tag in IE?

I have implemented Scalable Inman Flash Replacement (sIFR) to convert text. The issue is, I'm unable to do onClick event over the iSFR embed tags.

$(function() { $("embed").click(function(){ alert('clicked over embed'); }); });

This works in Firefox but not in Internet Explorer. Can anybody help me?


Flash movies tend to eat these events.

sIFR 3 lets you specify an onRelease callback handler in the sIFR.replace() arguments, which is called when the Flash movie is clicked on.
