    Well, to my knowledge you have two options:

    1. Fall back to HTML 4.01 Transitional
    2. Use the <object> and <param /> tags to embed the QT Movie.*

    * - Note: For backwards compatibility, use the <embed> tag after all <param /> tags are finished and before the </object> tag. The <embed> tags will still not validate, but it will provide better support to both modern and older browsers.

    For information on the <object> and <param /> tags, go to:

    http://www.w3schools.com/media/media_quicktime.asp

    For a list of attributes of the <embed> tag (parameters using the <param /> tag), go to:

    http://www.apple.com/quicktime/authoring/embed2.html

    Note: the height and width attributes should be used in the <object> tag, not in the <param /> tag.

    Hope this helps!

    tnx for the answer,

    as for the 1. - i would have to fall back to 4 transitional for all the pages then

    as for 2. - i'am doing that as you wrote, i will simply leave the code as is, with a note on why it would not validate (it is a school project after all....)
