We expect to remedy this with deployment support for the <object> spec. For example: <object data="foo.html"> <a href="foo.html">would be in-line if your client supported WD-object</a> </object>  http://www.w3.org/pub/WWW/TR/WD-object From reading that spec, I'm not clear whether foo.html is supposed to be a complete HTML document (ie with a <HEAD> and <BODY>), or if the HTML in foo.html is supposed be included the way a #include directive in C works.
