There are many tests on this page with code examples that fail.  A few of them 
are for the 'object' tag.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
just go to
If there are many, unrelated, tests that fail, then this needs to be split up
into many bugs.  There should be one bug per issue.  (A single issue could span
multiple tests, but not the whole test page.)

When filing additional bugs:
 * Please check for duplicates.  Many of the bugs are probably already filed.
 * Note additional bugs filed or existing bugs already covered here.

Perhaps they should be marked as dependencies and this bug can be used as a
tracking bug?

I've reported all of the bugs that show up on this page that haven't already
been reported, for the build 2000060520 on Linux; the all have pointers back
to this bug.
The pointers really should be dependencies -- this bug should depend on the 
other bugs. That way we can easily keep track of what is going on.

Also, this bug should be assigned to QA...

I searched for the bugs Matthew ( was talking about,
and came up with the following two matches:

1) bug 41778 "Quotation characters for different languages should be used",
   a dup of bug 16206 "Initial value for 'quotes' property could be nicer"
   which is (like this bug) is a direct child of the HTML4 meta bug 7954.

2) bug 41781 "Image map done with OBJECT tag doesn't show"
   which ``Looks like its fixed.'' according to Matthew.
bug 41781 is now VERIFIED FIXED. Is this bug really needed?

this test suite.
Depends on: text-dir, table-rules
Although I wrote the test pages referred, I didn't have anything to do with
Shane's submission. I only just noticed it today.

But as long as it's here, I may as well use it to track the bugs illustrated by
my test pages.
