<EMBED> is obsolete.  The W3C has standardized on <OBJECT> for that
function.  All text between the start and end tags of an <OBJECT> is
treated as alternate text, and may contain markup for browsers that
don't yet support <OBJECT>.  You can even nest <OBJECT>s, so that
a browser that doesn't support one mime-type has an alternative to
render.  Read the specs at for more details.
