in Firefox 1.0 exist the same problem (all unter Win 2k)
independent of the JVM-version (i have tested with 1.5 and 1.4.2)

sory for my terrible english
my favorite language is assembler
Given that markup, the correct height of the object is its intrinsic height (the
same as if the height attribute were not set), which is 0.  So sounds like the
behavior is correct.

Summary: <OBJECT ...> tag can't work with percent-value in width/height-attribus → <OBJECT ...> tag can't work with percent-value in width/height-attribut
Right.  The height of the percent-height applet in that testcase should be 0. 
I'm not sure why you reopened the bug...

why is "100%" == 0 ??
"100%" i think must be "complete viewable area of window".

i have added some screen-shots from Mozilla and Opera to this page :
<http://vikinger.privat.t-online.de/TEST.html>
In my opinion works Opera correct and Mozilla have a bug.

FireFox have the same Problem and its independent from used Java-Plugin (1.4.x
or 1.5.x)

Please check it again.
> why is "100%" == 0 ??

100% is defined to be "100% of the height of the parent".  In this case, parent
(that is, the <p> element) has auto height, so per the CSS spec a percentage
height on the child (the <object>) is treated as auto.

The net effect is that of not specifying height at all.  Which for <object>
means it should render with a 0 height.

It sounds like Opera is doing some sort of odd quirks-mode thing on this page
instead of following the relevant specifications...
