    the meaning of <embed>

    Why does the validator complain about my <embed> tag?
    Because EMBED has never been part of any HTML recommendation. It is a non-standard extension which, although supported by most browsers, is not part of HTML....
    The quote above is from http://www.sitepoint.com/forums/showthread.php?t=428205.


    I like to know the meaning of <embed>.

    What does <embed> mean?

    embed

    My crude dictionary version explanation:
    "To put into as part of that which it is in."
    Kind of like how the &#60;img> tag puts in an image.
    In fact, I've read where both the &#60;embed> and &#60;img> tags (and maybe even the &#60;applet> tag too) should be replaced by the &#60;object> tag.
