Subject: Re: [dita] <object> and HTML5

W3schools is an unsteady reference for HTML5 (or anything on its site). The spec is always best, and a good entry point to the spec is this site which has HTML5 committee members among its writers/reviewers, and links to the spec and provides commentary and an example (which, by my eye, seems more conventional than the w3schools version):


Any differences down the road should be just a transformation mapping change, as it is with adapted elements like dl (with our added dlentry) and fig (where our title maps to their figcaption in a fixed HTML5 transform).

One of my clients is going to render HTML5 output from their DITA topics and is concerned about the changes in <object> support in HTML5.  Specifically, many of the attributes that are supported in earlier versions and that are supported in the DITA <object> element are not supported in HTML5. See http://www.w3schools.com/tags/tag_object.asp for the source of the information they are using.


Are there recommendations for using <object> that we should follow? Should we change the support in DITA 2.0?


Many thanks, Amber
