The embed tag specifies the data to be displayed through a plug-in. Use the <noembed> tag for browsers which can not display a plug-in data. As the <embed> tag is old, it is recommended to use the <object> tag and the <param> tag. However, it is safe to use these tags together because some browsers support the <object> tag.
