It *is* possible that Mozilla now supports iFrames, I haven't kept up 
with it's development.  I do know for sure that they were originally an 
IE-only extension, so if Mozilla does support it, it represents a very 
rare case of Microsoft leading the pack :)

I'm not sure about the object tag idea... I've never seen it used that 
way but that certainly doesn't mean it won't work.   My understanding is 
that it embeds content in a page that is recognized by one plug-in or 
another... I suspect it wouldn't help in this case, but I could be wrong.

Now, if there is a way that I don't know about to target a layer, that 
could do the trick.
