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.
Setting all current Open/Normal to M4.
Summary: ALIGN="LEFT" not working for IMG → NOEMBED Tag not working
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. ;)
Verifying invalid; thanks av & beppe!
