Embed Tag - Should I...
Hi, i am working on a site at the moment and i need to use the <embed> tag for YouTube videos, rather than <object> or <iframe> as both <object> or <iframe> are causing conflicts with other scripts when i view my site on an iphone or ipad.
A - is the <embed> tag ok to you use
B - which is newer <embed> or <object>
Thanks in advance for your help...

Yes, it's fine to use <embed> (current HTML5 working draft). However, it won't validate as HTML 4.01 or XHTML 1.x.
It doesn't really make a difference which is newer, but I think <embed> might be slightly older than <object>.
P.S. I'm curious, why did you post this in the CSS forum instead of the HTML forum?
