Thanks for pointing that out.

I experimented a bit and found:

   * IE 5 sort of supports OBJECT, but opens a scroll window for the
      resulting in only marginal usefulness. I couldn't find any

   * Netscape as recently as version 4.73 doesn't support OBJECT at all,

So, nice try, but not useful, unless I'm missing something.
