That's fine I understand that, so please go for a sensible, but
neutral approach, and don't try to ape the windows controls when you
can't do it, Mozilla don't ape the native controls, Opera don't ape
the native controls.  This is a sensible approach when for other
reasons you can't use the native controls, as indeed you can't if
you're going for the HTC use anywhere approach.

This is nothing to do with the use of the Object element debate, and I
can't understand why you think it is.
