I'm trying to remember. Did you also say that FF makes some use of  
display: none for fallback content and that if FF was fixed so  
display:none didn't affect plug-in instantiation, both plug-ins in the  
following would load at the same time?

<object type="application/x-some-plugin">
     <object type="application/x-some-plugin"></object>
</object>

(as opposed to the nested one only firing up after the parent's fallback  
mode is triggered)

Also, is it considered a bug just for <object>, or <embed> too?

Thanks
