Take a look in your admin console under Communities (or Spaces) -> Settings -> Filters and Macros -> HTML Filter.
This filter controls what is and what is not allowed in message posts. You can specify which html tags are allowed or not among other things.

Thanks Seth. That worked!
This option does not appear in my Clearspace 2.5 installation. Did it go away? When I try to use <embed> or <object>, the values seem to get stripped and I am always left with vanilla HTML with no values.
When I insert this:
<EMBED src="Yourfilename.swf" quality=high bgcolor=#333399 WIDTH="320" HEIGHT="240" NAME="Yourfilename" ALIGN="" TYPE="application/x-shockwave-flash" PLUGINSPAGE="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer"></EMBED>
I get this on the next edit:
<body><p> <object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,40,0" height="240" width="320"> <param name="name" /> <param name="bgcolor" /> <param name="src" /><embed width="320" height="240" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"></embed> </object> </p></body>
We've had discussions with Jive about this stripping out of code issue. I don't have the references handy, but I believe it is a bug.
