wasp asks about using the object element

The Web Standards Project (WASP) have posted part 2 of the W3C’s response to their query re the correct way to include multimedia elements such as sound, animation and video in web pages. Bottom line in this final installment seems to be the obvious – the object element implementation varies across different browsers and developers should be aware of the variances. In order to accurately determine the level of support in different user agents they have created a test suite with results being collected here.

Here’s something I wasn’t aware of. Did you know that it’s possible to use the data attribute to embed the object directly (as opposed to refering to it via src).

Holy research period, Part 1 was originally posted back in June of 2004.

    How about Menalto Gallery. Just host your own Photogallery. It includes a Java Upload Applet (Drag and Drop), Gallery Remote (Also Drag and Drop), Windows XP Publishing agent, HTML Upload, Picassa surpopt, FTP Upload etc.To add it to WordPress install the WPG2 Plugin and you are all set. To Upload single Pictures in WordPress (with Pop-Up functionality) use the Image Manager Plugin for WordPress. I do it this way because I dont like sharing pictures on Yahoo and similar US based Services (Flicker etc.)
