<embed> in HTML loaded by Webview Broken in Sense UI?

 I have a WebView that loads HTML that contains an <embed>. When
loading in stock android (G1, NexusOne, Ion, etc) it looks fine and
can be clicked on to watch it in the YouTube app. But when loading it
using either the HTC EVO or Incredible (both Sense UI phones) the
space where the content should be is completely blank.

Try this code below... Any ideas? I'm stumped. Certainly looks like an
HTC Sense bug?

WebView wv = (WebView) findViewById(R.id.wv1);
    Here is the test embed:
    <embed src=\" http://www.youtube.com/v/-ptYTGTNiyQ \"
        type=\"application/x-shockwave-flash\" width=\"280\"
"text/html", "UTF-8");

In my testing, this will run fine on all Android versions, without
SenseUI, but it shows blank for what looks like any SenseUI phone, so
the user can't click on it.

I've been searching and looking for this answer for quite some time
now. I want to display a little HTML in a webView.

When the User read the HTML, he's supposed to use the back button to
go back to the previous activity. However, it closes the App.

How can I make it go back to the last Activity? It would also be ok to
display a soft back button or something.

Here my code

WebView webview = new WebView(this);
webview.loadData(worker.getHtmlResult(), "text/html", "utf-8");
