The validator just tells you that "embed" is invalid, because
it's not defined in the standard - if you're sure that you
want it anyway just ignore this error.  In theory you could
roll your own DTD for xhtml+embed, and then it would be valid
against this DTD, but that's probably a waste of time.

If you cannot test the effect of "object" without the "embed"
within it you're in a bad position.  Maybe use "object" with
"embed", it will work for your browser ignoring the "object".

And if it doesn't work for browsers supporting "object" you
could ask for bug reports.
