This is a very common error, would it be possible to update the error 
description for "[VE][76] element X undefined" to mention <embed> and 
the Flash Satay article.  In particular, the second bullet point for 
that error description mentions the very uncommon <spacer> element:

| * by using vendor proprietary extensions such as "<spacer>" or
| "<marquee>" (this is usually fixed by using CSS to achieve the desired
| effect instead).

It should mention a more commonly used element like <embed>.
