The object tag, or External Object element, is used to designate a container for an external resource.


If you are embedding an image, it is better to use the <img> tag. For embedding HTML the <iframe> tag should be used. For video or audio, the <video> or <audio> tags should be used.

<object type="application/pdf" data="/media/example.pdf" width="400" height="600"></object>
