HTML <object> tag


<object> - </object>

Definition and Usage

The OBJECT element is used to include objects such as images, videos, Java applets, and VRML worlds. The OBJECT element is intended to replace the more specific IMG and APPLET elements,  though a lack of browser support  makes the IMG and APPLET elements a better choice for the time being.
