People have written their extension tags dynamically for a number of different reasons over the years: -- advertisers have wanted to abstract their instructions from the page descriptions; -- web-standards advocates have wanted to obey the letter of the spec, while still being functional within the spirit of today's browsers; -- Microsoft changed functionality recently, after a legal challenge, so that OBJECT, EMBED and APPLET tags did not automatically work in a page. A recent change to Dreamweaver changed the extension-embedding tagging, so that viewers in Microsoft browsers would not see that little "click to activate" advice on rollovers. jd -- John Dowdell .
