I'm using the Win32 Gecko binary downloaded today (16 Dec 98) from developer.netscape.com; build date was 11 Dec 98, I think, but "about:" doesn't work. On the page above (which will be replaced by a fully validated HTML 4.0 Transitional version as of early 17 Dec 98 PST), there are several OBJECT elements that refer to various image types. In most cases the outer OBJECT points at a PNG, the inner OBJECT a GIF or JPEG, and inside that (the inner OBJECT's contents) is an IMG PNG or GIF or JPEG. Regardless of whether this version of Gecko has native PNG support, it unquestionably has native GIF and JPEG support and should therefore, according to the HTML 4.0 specification, render the OBJECT images (one of them) as an image, not as a blank "OBJECT" box. Note also that if a PNG plug-in exists on the same system but outside the Gecko installation tree (in fact, on a completely separate drive), that plug-in will be invoked--and whatever you guys think, I don't believe that's proper behavior (i.e., if I want the plug-in used by Gecko, I'll install it under Gecko myself). As it happens, the PNG Live 2.0b5 plug-in crashes Gecko. Btw, an alternate, strict HTML 4.0 version (using CSS) is available at: http://www.cdrom.com/pub/png/pngs-strict.html as of tonight sometime. The PNG Live 2.0b5 plug-in is available via a link on this page, under the Netscape Navigator entry: http://www.cdrom.com/pub/png/pngapbr.html
I think this one is yours. Enjoy.
Don't forget to implement the attribute TABINDEX for element OBJECT.
Setting all current Open/Normal to M4.
OBJECT doesn't seem to be supported at all for displaying images. The page http://www.rpi.edu/~randeg/smiles.html makes it clearer, since it has "No." for alternative content.

Support for images in object tag is implemented now
If the OBJECT element *itself* is rendered, its contents (in the container sense) must be ignored. The 1999.03.10 fix takes care of rendering OBJECT images themselves, but it doesn't stop there--an enclosed IMG image will also be rendered. In the referenced page above, this shows up as a pair of side-by-side penguins at the top, one labelled "GIF version!", and also as a pair of side-by-side icons near the middle of the page ("PNG" on a yellow background and "GIF" on a blue background). Please click on either of the two screenshot links immediately below the penguin(s) for the correct appearance (at least approximately).
I think it does not render IMG image, it goes for the second OBJECT image, which is obviously wrong, you are right.
Per screenshot from test page this still fails as mentioned, march 19 builds optimized Seamonkey on Linux and PC - Mac has another problem preventing plugins from loading. Clearing fixed res.
This may now be fixed, except I'm not sure what you mention above about problems on the Mac. I think the original problem is fixed - see bug 4441.
