The object tag specifies various objects. This tag allows you to render images, run applets or display a movie for embedding them in pages. In addition, you can nest <object> tags within each other. If the outermost data can be displayed, the <object> tag described inside it will be ignored. If the outermost data cannot be displayed, the data inside it will be displayed. The processing will be handled like this until data can be found.
Use the <param> tag to transmit data to the object specified by the <object> tag.
