EMBED - embedded plug-in
The <EMBED> tag displays the
output from a file that is executed by a plug-in. The ouput is displayed as part
of the HTML document. An application is written so that it can be integrated
into the browser, or 'plugged-in' to act as an extension to the browser. You
must use either <SRC> or <TYPE> attributes so the browser can
determine which plug-in to use. Additionally, the user must have th appropriate
plug-in installed in their browsers, else they will not be able to view the
results of running the embedded file. If the user opens a page and it contains
an embedded object which needs an uninstalled plug-in, it will ask the user if
he or she wants to load and install the appropriate plug-in.
<EMBED SRC="location" TYPE="MIMEtype"
PLUGINSPAGE="instrURL" PLUGINURL="pluginURL" ALIGN="left|right|top|bottom"
HEIGHT="height" WIDTH="width" UNITS="units"
HIDDEN="true|false" HSPACE="horizMargin" VSPACE="vertMargin"
SRC optionally specifies the location of the plug-in by its
TYPE specifies the MIME type of the EMBED tag which specifies
which plug-in to load. Visible plug-ins require HEIGHT & WIDTH
attributes if TYPE used.
PLUGINSPAGE specifies the URL that contains the instructions
for installing the plug-in if not already installed.
PLUGINURL specifies the location of a Java Archive (JAR) file,
which is a compressed collection of files. This would invoke the JAR
Installation Manager (JIM), rather than loading the URL into a window. It is
recommended that PLUGINURL is used over PLUGINSPAGE, as if both specified,
PLUGINURL takes precedence.
ALIGN specifies the alignment for the embedded plug-in.
LEFT aligns to the left (DEFAULT).
RIGHT aligns to the right.
TOP aligns to the top.
BOTTOM aligns to the bottom.
BORDER specifies the size of the border around the plug-in, in
FRAMEBORDER specifies that the plug-in has no border.
HEIGHT specifies the height of the area required by the
plug-in. The units are determined by the UNITS attribute. Default is pixels.
WIDTH specifies the width of the area required by the plug-in.
The units are determined by the UNITS attribute. Default is pixels.
UNITS specifies the unit of measurement for the plug-in. Pixels
(default) or en (half the current point size)
HIDDEN specifies whether the plug-in is visible on the page or
not. The default is FALSE (not hidden), whereas if TRUE, then this overrides any
HEIGHT & WIDTH settings to zero.
HSPACE specifies a margin, in pixels, between the left and
right edges of the plug-in and surrounding content.
VSPACE specifies a margin, in pixels, between the top and
bottom edges of the plug-in and surrounding content.
NAME specifies the name of the plug-in. This name can be used
PALETTE specifies (MS Windows ONLY) that the plug-in should use
either the FOREGROUND palette or the BACKGROUND palette
