2.1.25 [HTML] Section 13.3, Generic inclusion: the OBJECT element

V0038:

The specification states:

 codebase=uri[CT]
  
 This attribute specifies the base path used to resolve relative URIs specified by 
 the classid, data, and archive attributes. When absent, its default value is the 
 base URI of the current document.

All Document Modes (All Versions)

The codebase attribute is not used to overwrite the root used in relative path navigations.

V0039:

The specification states:

 data=uri[CT]
  
 This attribute may be used to specify the location of the object's data, for 
 instance image data for objects defining images, or more generally, a serialized 
 form of an object which can be used to recreate it. If given as a relative URI, it 
 should be interpreted relative to the codebase attribute.

All Document Modes (All Versions)

The codebase attribute is not used to establish a new relative path. All paths in the data attribute start at the relative root for relative URIs.

Quirks Mode and IE7 Mode (All Versions)

If the data attribute is used to specify image data, the image is displayed in a frame.

V0040:

The specification states:

 Type = content-type[CI]
  
 If the value of this attribute differs from the HTTP Content-Type returned by the 
 server when the object is retrieved, the HTTP Content-Type takes precedence.

Quirks Mode, IE7 Mode, and IE8 Mode (All Versions)

When the value of the type attribute differs from the value of the HTTP Content-Type returned by the server, the HTTP Content-Type does not take precedence.

V0041:

The specification states:

 Archives specified as relative URIs should be interpreted relative to the codebase 
 attribute.

All Document Modes (All Versions)

The relative root is not overwritten with the value in the codebase attribute.

V0042:

The specification states:

 declare
  
 When present, this boolean attribute makes the current OBJECT definition a 
 declaration only. The object must be instantiated by a subsequent OBJECT definition 
 referring to this declaration.

All Document Modes (All Versions)

The declare attribute is not supported in the OBJECT element. The object is loaded as if the declare attribute was not set.

V0043:

The specification states:

 standby=text[CS]
  
 This attribute specifies a message that a user agent may render while loading the 
 object's implementation and data.

All Document Modes (All Versions)

No standby message is rendered while loading an object’s implementation or data.
