I'm not exactly sure what you mean, so I'll just refer you to the 
description of the object element in the HTML spec [1] so you may 
understand a little more about what that markup does.

It's not about the presentation, it's about using the correct markup to 
do the job.

Use stylesheets to specify how it will be dispalyed, the markup should 
say absolutely nothing about the presentation.

Using object is just one possible solution to your problem, but if it's 
not suitable, nor any other suggestion given to you, I suggest you try 
an HTML help, or maybe a server side processing help mailing 
list/newsgroup/forum to ask how you may go about solving your problem.
