Thanks for the links, Mark.  The last object links is very  
interesting. I the <param> tags and the object within an object adds  
lots of flexibility. I might argue for a bit more, or perhaps more  
browser recognition. Or I might continue to be provocative and say  
<object> is pretty geeky compared -- we don't have a <document> tag  
with <params> for describing paragraphs.

But it is something...

<P><OBJECT declare
...view the poem in KublaKhan.txt here...
<P><OBJECT classid="http://foo.bar.com/poem_viewer"
<PARAM name="font" valuetype="object" value="#tribune">
<P>You're missing a really cool poem viewer ...
