Embed tag not supported

P: 49
Hello everybody,

I have to validate a site. Doctype for our site isxhtml1.0
. As xhtml 1.0 does not support embed tag, on validation it throws an undefined "embed" element error . So how could I resolve it .
Please help me out in this regard. As soon as possibly. I need to fix it urgently.

You can't. There is no such thing as embed. You should use 'object' instead.

I agree with you that there is no embed tag in html 4.0 and xhtml 1.0 , but even though we need to use embed tag for better browser compatibility, some older version browsers does not support object element thats why I am asking for some alternative. I have to use both embed and object element for browser compatibility moreover I need that document to be valid as well .

The only browser that had problems with the object tag is IE, as always is the case, but I don't recall what those are. So it's not a "cross compatibility" issue, it's an IE issue.

Whenever anyone talks about "cross compatibility" they mean "it doesn't work in IE".
