Hello,

I am seeking help at this email address according to the recommendation  below:

"If You Don't Know Where To Start

If, after reviewing the above, you are uncertain where to direct your
question, please use site-comments@w3.org and we will direct you to
the proper forum."

found on this page:

http://www.w3.org/Consortium/contact

My first, more general question is I would like to find a list of
forums that deal specifically with w3c specifications.  The text above
seemed promising in that regard.

More specifically, I have this question:

I have a large number of QT movies in an archive that I have been
displaying using the ol' object/embed tag method. In an attempt to
bring the pages up to w3 standards, which does not allow embed tags, I
have considered this recommendation from Apple for embedding QT
videos:

http://developer.apple.com/internet/ieembedprep.html

Great, now the pages validate. However, when viewing the generated
source written by the js, what do I find? Exactly the same code I used
that would not validate - object tags with an embed tag in the
container.

My question may be somewhat philosophical : Is this just merely a way
of "tricking" the w3 validator? I mean, if the effective code that the
browser sees is the same, why not just put it in there with HTML in
the first place, other than to be able to put the w3 'validates!' icon
at the bottom of the page?

You see what I am getting at?

If you could direct me where to find the answer to this question I
would very much appreciate it.

Thank you,

Allasso Travesser
