ISSUE-158: HTML4's content-model for <object> should continue

object-content-model

HTML4's content-model for <object> should continue

State:
CLOSED
Product:
pre-LC1 HTML 5 spec
Raised by:
Sam Ruby
Opened on:
2011-01-22
Description:
In XHTML1 and HTML4, the <object> element creates a new context, where the parent element is ignored when the content of object is validated.

This permits such constructs such as

<p>Paragraph 1
<object><p>Seemingly nested paragraph</p></object>
Still paragraph 1</p>

In fact, the solution text to ISSUE-107 resulted that the editor inserted exactly such an example into the specification.

http://www.w3.org/html/wg/tracker/issues/107

The change proposal for ISSUE-128 also identifies a compatibility-need for using <object> to avoid that <p> is autoclosed by <figure> in some parsers.
