HTMLEmbedElement

The HTMLEmbedElement interface provides special properties (beyond the regular HTMLElement interface it also has available to it by inheritance) for manipulating <embed> elements.

This topic describes the HTMLEmbedElement interface as defined in the standard. It does not address earlier, non-standardized version of the interface.
