Description

21 years ago
The IMG is correctly being presented as alternate content for the OBJECT
element, but it isn't aligned all the way left as it should be, for some reason.

NOEMBED tag never came to action in pre-5.0 world since we always had a default
plugin. I think we should lower priority for this.

If I read the spec right...
According to the HTML spec NOEMBED tag should only be processed by browsers
which are not capable of rendering embedded objects at all. So it is NOT
for alternative context. Netscape browser obviously does not fall to this
category. Marking invalid.

[Was rubber-stamped as verified and is correspondingly re-opened. I'm re-opening

because I want to personally check out the spec in question.]

I do not believe this is a valid element, at least not within HTML 4.0 DTD.
However, it is a Netscape extension that can be used in conjunction with the
EMBED element. This was Netscapes solution to embedding plug-ins. For more
information about EMBED/NOEMBED go see
http://developer.netscape.com:80/docs/manuals/htmlguid/tags14.htm

So it says:
The NOEMBED tag specifies text to be displayed by browsers that cannot display
content from plug-in programs. Browsers that can display plug-ins
ignore all text in the NOEMBED tag.

To me it looks like "browsers that cannot display content from plug-in programs"
means browsers that do not know what EMBED tag is, rather than just do not have
appropriate plugin installed. So this kind of browsers must know NOEMBED tag.
And vice versa. Having or not having a plugin is a different issue from knowing
or not knowing EMBED tag, although results in the same thing -- not rendering
embedded object.

Sure. I'm confident that you're both right; I just like to see for myself. ;)
