Objects

It was always intended with XHTML 1.0 that the object tag be used for embedding other files into the web page. The embed tag was never a part of that standard and the iframe tag was flagged for removal. XHTML 5 has arrived just afer the last of the browsers to not support the object tag properly has died out meaning that you can now use the object tag properly to attach external HTML pages without a plugin or files of various other types – flash, java, pdf etc – where the browser does have an appropriate plugin installed.
