HTML Reference Sheet

Objects, Images, Applets

HTML's multimedia features allow authors to include images, applets (programs that are automatically downloaded and run on the user's machine), video clips, and other HTML documents in their pages.

For example, to include a PNG image in a document, authors may write:

<body>
<p>Here is a close-up of the Grand Canyon:</p>
<p><img src="canyon.png" width="600" height="340" alt="Grand Canyon Close-up" style="border:0px;"</p>
</body>

Generic Inclusion: the OBJECT element

Most user agents have built-in mechanisms for rendering common data types such as text, GIF images, colors, fonts, and a handful of graphic elements. To render data types they don't support natively, user agents generally run external applications. The OBJECT element allows authors to control whether data should be rendered externally or by some program, specified by the author, that renders the data within the user agent.

The OBJECT tag is most commonly used for embedding such things as flash objects, audio clips, and applets. More details on the object tag is available from the HTML Tag List.
