Greetings,

There are two places in http://www.w3.org/TR/WD-html40/struct/includes.html
where an IMG tag has apparently been carelessly converted to OBJECT without
changing the `src' attribute to `data'.  The alternative is that the list
of allowed attributes for the OBJECT element is incomplete.

(I don't suppose it's any surprise that the latest releases of both Navigator
and MSIE have serious deficiencies when dealing with nested OBJECTs...)

Regards,
