It should be mentioned that both Netscape and Opera are implementing plug-in 
support using OBJECT that should be at least as good as the one we have 
using EMBED. Who knows, they might even end up being interoperable...

For the time being you would need to do the non-validating embed-in-object 
or object-in-embed coding to support Netscape type plug-ins, but by the time 
XHTML 2.0 is in common use, you might not have to do that anymore.
