      I have a question with respect to how RTE works with embedded HTML.

      <object width="425" height="355"><param name="movie"

      type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425"
      height="355"></embed></object>

      it gets treated as text. Is there a way to get it to be treated as
      HTML (i.e. I would like to see the embedded video in the editor)?

        You can use this command to place that HTML into the editor:

        myEditor.execCommand('inserthtml', 'STRING OF HTML HERE');

        That will put the string of HTML in the location of the cursor.

        But, you probably don't want to do that ;)

        The problem is that the movie/flash and other things like that won't play properly inside the editor.

        This is the example that the Yahoo! Shine team used to implement their media plugin:

        Does that help?

          Dav,

          Thanks. That is a great example. I was hoping there would be
          something that would work inside the editor, but at least there is a
          way to get HTML saved properly. I will follow that approach.

          Regards,
          Dave
