I got some questions about the <object> element. whatwg doesn't specify
that yet, but I'm told it will.
Consider this HTML snippet:
So, no fallback content is given.
Should the 404 page be rendered, or should the object behave like it was
display:none? (It seems pretty clear to me that if fallback content is
given, that should be used for 404 pages. The question is, of course,
what would constitute lack of fallback content, especially in the light
Then, what about:
<object data="http://www.mozilla.org/" type="x-foo/x-bar"></object>
Clearly, that MIME type is not supported by anything. So... should the
browser request http://www.mozilla.org, find out it's text/html, and
render it, OR should it show nothing (or fallback content if any)
because the type is not supported anyway?
