problem with <embed>tag in password form (25.50 KB, patch)

Description Patrick Leipold 2005-09-16 08:04:33 UTC

on the website we use an embed-TAG within an object-TAG
to show a flash-file. The emded-TAG is built up like this:

<embed src="<SOURCEFILE>" width="<WIDTH>" height="<HEIGHT>" pluginspage="<URL>">

Those 4 attributes used in here are - as far as the technical literature says -
allowed attributes, but your validator-check says, for instance, "there is no
attribute 'SRC'" or "there is no attribute 'WIDTH'".
Comment 1 Bj 2005-09-16 08:22:46 UTC
The embed element is not part of the HTML specification, please try searching 
the mailing list archives for further advice.
