Hi Mark,

Thanks for your thorough article on HTML5 video,
http://diveintohtml5.org/video.html

One small factual correction: the article begins:

    Anyone who has visited YouTube.com in the past four years
    knows that you can embed video in a web page. But prior to
    HTML5, there was no standards-based way to do this.

But HTML4 did provide a standard way to embed video, the OBJECT
element. http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/struct/objects.html

Could you please update your article?

thanks!
