    Who says that img is deprecated? Not the W3C.

    This does work, btw, so long as you add height and width attributes. The
object will show scroll bars, which don't seem to respond to CSS ("overflow:
hidden ;"), which admittedly is disappointing. However, you may be unaware
that Microsoft invented the <object> element back in 1996 for IE 3?
