Some stuff culled from Altavista:



<OBJECT classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000"
  width=100 height=80> 
   <PARAM name="Movie" value="moviename.swf"> 
   <EMBED src="moviename.swf" width=100 height=80
     <IMG src="moviename.gif" width=100 height=80> 

As their (not even a little bit accessible) example of how to embed a
shockwave or flash object.


gives a number of examples like

  <EMBED src="file.wav" autostart=true loop=false volume=100 hidden=true>
    <NOEMBED><BGSOUND src="file.wav"></NOEMBED>

  <EMBED src="file.mid" autostart=true loop=false volume=30 hidden=true>
    <NOEMBED><BGSOUND src="file.mid"></NOEMBED>

It seems that EMBED can be used as an empty element or not. I haven't seen
anyone talking about ALT for it, but I haven't seen any examples which
attempted to provide accessible content anyway, so it doesn't really prove
much - sigh.


Compares how EMBED is implemented (and with what attributes) in NN and IE
