Sorry. I must have missed that the handling from
<http://www.w3.org/TR/html401/types.html#type-cdata> wasn't included
in the attribute value state and was assuming that FF and IE were
making an exception from those white-space rules (Opera follows them
for params) and not normalizing the newlines in the param's value
attribute for the tcl plugin's sake.  With that in mind, I was
concerned about the difficulty of making an exception in the
normalization for a param in OBJECT, but not a param in a media

Since that's not the case, carry on. :)
