HTML: using “Object” tag for “Iframe”

By Xah Lee. Date: . Last updated: .

HTML has a iframe tag that lets you embed a page inside another page. However, technically it is not supported in HTML 4.01 strict or XHTML 1.1 strict. You can use object tag for similar effect, like this:

<object type="text/html" data="../ex/iframe_me.html" width="200" height="200"></object>

For example of using “iframe” tag, see: HTML: Iframe.
