Thank you both for the help.  File objects are just the ticket (but it
turns out that Image objects work nearly as well).  For the record,
here's what I did:

 + create File object with id "foo_swf".
 + upload my local foo.swf file into foo_swf.
 + create DTML Method object "foo_flash" to provide all the HTML
   OBJECT and EMBED elements needed to wrap the flash object,
   referring to that flash object as '<PARAM NAME=movie VALUE="foo_swf">'
   and 'src="foo_swf"', respectively.
 + use '<dtml-var foo_flash>' to display the flash object in a DTML
    Document.
