I think I can answer this.
Behaviors do not require trusted ActiveX permissions. Even if you
disable ActiveX in IE behaviors will work. You'll have to disable
ActiveScripting (JScript/VBScript) to disable behaviors. You can also
use a user style sheet to disable behaviors.
Behaviors are not the only solution but they have one important feature
that is hard to achieve efficiently without using behaviors and that is
that the element is can be initialized when it is started, ended or when
page is loaded and this is too late for most real world scenarios. One
can initialize the element earlier but that requires inline script
elements or polling.
HTC stands for HTML components and this file ending was initially used
for scriptlets. Scriptlets are a specific plugin type which is used with
the object element in HTML.
