Thank you. I'm troubled by the (ab)use of the "object" tag - what object
is being embedded, in such cases?

I'm also troubled by the exhortation:

        To avoid unsightly messes in Safari, you should include the
        following style rule in a style sheet for the page:

        object.include { width:0; height:0 }

and the effect on the page of not including something similar, when
viewed using FireFox 1.5 (which has vast areas of white psace0 or ie6
(which has markers not unlike those for missing images) - see:


and compare with the original:



Also, I marked up the text concerned as:

        <span class="vcard"><span class="fn n" id="club"><span
        class="org">West Midland Bird Club</span></span></span>

but it seems to me that:

        <span class="vcard fn n org" id="club">West Midland Bird

should work. Thoughts?
