Hey, i noticed that Microsoft's HTML reference [1] says IE actually
does understand OBJECT, and links to the W3C draft [2] too.  Thumbs up.

However, the only description we get is

    OBJECT -- Inserts an OLE control.

which hardly seems fair.  Thumbs down.

But i heard this was going to be updated soon anyway.
