Subject: Contents of OBJECT element

The HTML 4.0 DTD declares that the OBJECT element
can contain %block.

However, since OBJECT is an inline element, how
can it contain block-level elements?

I notice that the new INS and DEL elements were defined
separately to avoid this problem; perhaps OBJECT should
be similarly separate.  (Just like INS and DEL it can
contain block-level elements, but it is not itself a
block-level element, so it doesn't cause a new
paragraph.)

P.S. Anyone else getting huge numbers of misdirected
     digests from "~adminbar@mutual.co.uk"?
