The object tag is explained in the main CodeHelp site. Note that the tag is not currently supported by WebTV or Opera but is supported fully by Microsoft Internet Explorer (v2 and later). Netscape (v2 onwards) supports the tag for some applications but not for HTML. See the information on the <layer> tag in the CodeHelp site.
<object classid="URL" codebase="URL" data="URL"
When using <object> to replace the deprecated <applet> tag for Java applets, the <param> tag can be used as normal within the <object> and </object> tags.
window.open("URL","toolbar=no, width=350, height=400, status=no,scrollbars=yes, resize=yes, menubar=yes");
Part of a select element, see input
tags for HTML syntax.
<select ID="inputselect" size="3">
If you use a fixed size in a style sheet to create an area around content, there is a
method for dictating how any overflow is handled. Use overflow:visible to extend the area to contain
everything, despite the fixed size, use overflow:hidden to crop the content - even if this means that the
last line is unreadable - or use overflow:scroll to keep the fixed size and add a scrollbar to allow the
rest of the content to be seen.
<p style="position:relative; width:200px; height:100px; overflow:visible">
Note that Netscape4 may not display overflows correctly.
