- Firefox/Opera and Object/Embed tag

I've decided to changed all my embed tags for shockwave files to object
tags. This works fine in IE but it looks like Firefox/Opera are still
using the old style embed tag. I work around this by putting the embed
tag inside the object tag as an alternative option.
However, since the object tag is in the HTML 4 specs, I fail to see why
this doesn't work without using embed. Is it something I'm doing wrong,
or do these browsers don't support it in the first place?
Re: Firefox/Opera and Object/Embed tag
<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="path/to.swf"
<param name="movie" value="path/to.swf" />
This works fine in firefox 1.5 I have been getting minor issues with it
in 1.0.* (When handling layout with CSS)
