      Will do. I saw a rash of them when adobe.com first added SWF to the site,
      but now the OBJECT/EMBED is used there instead. My own IE/Win use is mostly
      for testing these days, but will pass along any I see.

      ? An internal scripting engine should be fine, and VBScript can talk with
      ActiveX Controls. Which scripting is affected...?

      Agreed. I'm not sure if the new OBJECT definition had a migration path
      planned out... seemed like it would conflict with some existing realworld
      pages and viewers...?
