I noticed that the latest HTML 5 draft states that the "name" and "codebase" attributes are not allowed on the "object" element.
2. The "codebase" attribute is the only way to auto-install or update plug-ins in IE. This is an important feature that should not be removed without providing an alternative solution.
3. The HTML 5 draft states that the "embed" element is used for plug-in content. The "object" element is a better mechanism for loading plug-ins and is supported by all browsers. The HTML 5 spec should state the "embed" or "object" elements can be used for loading plug-ins.
