Nothing to do with events. Why exactly should there be a focus() method there? Do you expect that to be present on all <embed>s or just Flash ones?

Why should there be a focus() method there? Well, I'd use for one if there were. Why not? All embeds I guess. (BTW, IE provides focus() on <object> tags, not that that in itself is a reason).
Interesting. In DOM2 HTML, <select>, <input>, <anchor>, <textarea> have focus() methods, but <button> and <object> do not. jst, that seems like an oversight to me....
HTML 4 Button elements have an onfocus event attribute but not so for HTML 4 Objects.
