    HTML <object> tag

    HTML allows the binding of dBase information to a -minimally- configured table on a HTML file. All you need to do is create the "template" of what the table looks like (using regular <table> tags, then bind the data to this table and voila... . Now, the binding makes use of a VERY lengthy identifier under the <object> tag. Is there a place where a list of such objects or class identifiers and their associated attributes can be found?

    Re: HTML <object> tag

    I would suspect that if there is a list of such objects, it would be on the World Wide Web Consutium's web site, http://w3.org. But to just right to the object definition for HTML 4.01, have a look at http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/struct/ob...ml#edef-OBJECT.

    There is bound to be something there.

    Re: HTML <object> tag

    I assume the lengthy identifier is the GUID that Windows looks up in the Registry. For dBASE data, perhaps it is one of the Office Web Controls. I don't think there is any master list of these objects, and some organizations (like ours) block the downloading of new ActiveX controls at the firewall from most sites. Accordingly, I would suggest that unless you're programming for your intranet, you might not want to use server-side scripting to create the table rather than rely on the user to have the right GUID in her or his registry.
