A mechanism for adding plugin functionality to a web browser.


JavaScript - 1.0
JScript - 1.0
Internet Explorer - 3.0
Netscape - 2.0
Inherits from:Element object

Netscape and MSIE encapsulate plugin/embedded objects in a different way. In MSIE they are objects of the EMBED class. In Netscape they are objects commonly referred to as belonging to the Plugin class.

Because of this, and because each browser supports different properties and methods for them, they will be discussed here as Embed objects for MSIE and Plugin objects for Netscape.
