This is why I suggested this. When I found there was no effective 
'include' function in HTML, well...  Anyway I think that if it's brought 
to the attention of Microsoft and Netscape, (and the other browser 
vendors) it'll be supported. I think it's just a matter of it being 
stipulated in the description of the OBJECT tag in the draft that object 
should support ALL valid data types, or at least, the basics (GIF, HTML 
and text). Mebbe a list of basic data types should be provided along with 
the draft (or a link to it perhaps).
