Does anyone know how to use literal HTML when editing the wiki. I'm  
trying to use <object> and <img> and the like but it doesn't seem to  
work. Perhaps the Wiki isn't the place to do this since it's going to  
change my source text into arbitrary bad practice wikimedia style  
markup.

Also, I was wondering if there are some standard samples of various  
media that I can reference to create a test page. I'm trying to put  
together a test page for <object> and related elements and then  
source some video, audio, flash, and still image files.

I'd appreciate any assistance or suggestions anyone can offer.

Take care,
Rob
