    How long do you suppose it will be supported by the OS?

    As long as <object> is supported in html?

    Note: ActiveX isn't just a browser technology. It's used in many more applications, and in many places in the OS as well.

    <object> is actually part of the spec. But it was originally used by IE back in IE3.

    Well, <object clsid="GUID"></object> is Microsoft's bending of the rules. The official one is <object src="/Path/" type="MIME/ContentType" />

    For instance, in XHTML2.0 <img /> is depreciated in favor of <object type="image/jpeg" src="images/hello.jpg" /> and the type="" attribute is required.

    oh no. I seem to have gone cross-eyed.


    Webbo, your knowledge of mark-up is insurmountable.

    Sir, I salute you.

    Bent all the way into the 4.01 spec, at that... Wink

    Yeah I was wondering about the application aspect of it; thanks.
