Replying to a question about a good way to embed for quicktime (email 
Re: [VE][108] Error Message Feedback),  the following tag is recommended:

<object classid="clsid:02BF25D5-8C17-4B23-BC80-D3488ABDDC6B"
class="image" height="256px" width="320px"
   <param name="src" value="action_conan.mov" />
   <param name="autoplay" value="true" />
   <param name="loop" value="true" />
   <param name="controller" value="true" />
   <embed src="action_conan.mov" height="256px" width="320px"
autoplay="true" loop="true" controller="true"
pluginspage="http://www.apple.com/quicktime/" class="image">

I have been using this tag, and it never passed the validator. But more 
surprising, the one you recommended doesn't either, at least in an 
xhtml-page. Neither does any other variation of this tag that I've found 
on the web.

So, if this tag is corrrect, why doesn't it pass the validator? And if 
it isn't, then why does everybody keep recommending it?
