Hi!                                                                   
I think I may have found an error in the HTML 4.01 specification!     
Watch this:                                                           
                                                                      
-- BEGIN QUOTE --                                                     
                                                                      
13.3.3                                                                
                                                                      
Some rendering schemes require additional information to identify     
their implementation and must                                         
be told where to find that information. Authors may give path         
information to the object's                                           
implementation via the codebase attribute.                            
                                                                      
          <OBJECT codetype="application/java-archive"                 
                  classid="java:program.start">                       
                                                                      
codebase="http://foooo.bar.com/java/myimplementation/"                
          </OBJECT>                                                   
                                                                      
-- END QUOTE --                                                       
                                                                      
Shouldn't codebase be an attribute instead, like this:                
                                                                      
          <OBJECT codetype="application/java-archive"                 
                  classid="java:program.start"                        
                                                                      
codebase="http://foooo.bar.com/java/myimplementation/">               
          </OBJECT>                                                   
                                                                      
Anyway, keep up the good work!
