In <http://www.w3.org/TR/html401/struct/objects.html> 

| 13.3.1 Rules for rendering objects
| 
| A user agent must interpret an OBJECT element according to the
| following precedence rules:
| 
| 1. The user agent must first try to render the object. It should not
                                                            ^^^^^^^^^^
|    render the element's contents, 

seems to imply that it is ok (but not recommended) for a user agent to
render the object _and_ its content. (Internet Explorer5/Mac does this)

The rest of 13.3.1 (esp. the example with 3 nested objects) relies on
the fact that the content of an object is rendered only if the object
itself is not rendered.
