Well, first of all when you do this,

it appears that you have organization-unit's without an organization- 
name, which, though its not entirely clear from the RFC, seems to be  
invalid. You could do a second object-include to get the organization- 
name in there. Which is what you appear to be doing with this:

> <object data="#footer" class="include" type="text/html" width="0"  
> height="0"></object>

That that brings alot more than just organization-name with it, it  
brings another "org" thing and and  adr and such, which is fine if  
that's what you intended. The only problem is that the contraints on  
org are really hard to fulfill this way. organization-unit needs to  
be inside org, as does organization-name, but these are arranged in  
such a way as to be impossible with the current object-include  

Unfortunately, your best bet may be to just forget about organization- 
unit for now.

Well, It'd probably be better to add a wrapper, here's why- this:

> <td class="title">Administrative Resource &amp; Operations Coordinator
> <object data="#llawhon_email" class="include" type="text/html"  
> width="0" height="0"></object>

after doing the object-include, will have more than just the title in  
that node, so many parsers would actually put the person's email in  
the title field.
