I've been reading the HTML 4.0 draft, and think I've found an error in one
of the examples. In the "inclusions" section
http://www.w3.org/TR/WD-html40/struct/includes.html, there is an example
showing nested <OBJECT> elements:

  <OBJECT title="The Earth as seen from space"
             classid="http://www.observer.mars/TheEarth.py">
   <OBJECT data="TheEarth.mpeg" type="application/mpeg">
**  <OBJECT src="TheEarth.gif">
     The <STRONG>Earth</STRONG> as seen from space.
**  </OBJECT>
   </OBJECT>
  </OBJECT>

The lines marked ** should either (a) define an IMG element, or (b) define
an OBJECT with a DATA attribute. The SRC attribute isn't defined for the
OBJECT element, is it?

[Of course, I'm not immune to the possibility that I've misread the whole
chapter ;-)]
