Cool, I didn't realize that.  Maybe it was just that support for it was 
not universal until relatively recently.  The last time I did any non-IE 
development frankly was about 3-4 years ago, obviously much could have 
changed since then.

That's definitely cool too, I never would have thought to even try it. 
I assume an <object> is available through DOM... does it have a src 
attribute?  You know what I'm getting at: dynamic changing of the 
content.  If that's possible, any idea how universal that would be?
