Hi,

In an multiple object nesting structure we must ensure a suitable
content is provided to the user. This content will be browser dependant
(it will depend on which mime types are supported by the browser). We
don't mind (at least at mobileOK Basic level) if the content provided is
the best that fits device capabilities. Our only concern is that at the
end of the object chain (the worst case, none of the nested objects are
supported) there is a text alternative.

With these assumptions in mind the object checking of OBJECTS_OR_SCRIPTS
may be as simple as:

--- begin proposed text ---
For each object element that has no object element ancestor:
	If the TEXT content of the object element and all nested objects
is empty, warn
	
	If the TEXT content of the object element and all nested objects
consists only of white space, FAIL
--- end proposed text ---

Miguel
