Good day, Jon.

JB> <link src="./a.jpg"><i>rich</i> <b>fallback<b></link>
JB> <link src="./a.mpg"><i>rich</i> <b>fallback<b></link>
JB> <link src="./a.wav"><i>rich</i> <b>fallback<b></link> 

JB> Current browsers move <link> from inside <body> to the <head> as
JB> a void element, and leave the "contents" of <link> in place.  

And what's about

  <link href="./styles.css" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet">
    <i>rich</i> <b>fallback<b>

to inform browsers in case, if css-file is un-accessable ?
Deal is that, css-file can contain some content:
pseudo-elements, binding ...


JB> I suggest that <object> be used for all other cases
but only without attribute @type for graphic, video and sound files

JB> I don't think IE's poor handling of <object> fallback is enough
JB> reason to abandon <object> for a new element, especially when
JB> browsers, including IE, already support <object>
