Go to Exercise page


HTML Code:

<!DOCTYPE html><!-- Declares the document type and version of HTML -->
<html><!-- Begins the HTML document -->
<head><!-- Contains metadata about the document -->
<meta charset="utf-8"><!-- Specifies the character encoding of the document -->
<title>How to define an embedded object</title><!-- Sets the title of the document -->
</head><!-- Ends the head section -->
<body><!-- Contains the content of the document -->
Object <!-- Displays text indicating the presence of an object -->
<object width="400" height="400" data="https://www.w3resource.com/html-css-exercise/basic/solution/phpdemo1.swf"><!-- Defines an embedded object with specified width, height, and data source -->
</object><!-- Ends the embedded object -->
</body><!-- Ends the body section -->
</html><!-- Ends the HTML document -->


  • The HTML document starts with a declaration of its type and version (<!DOCTYPE html>).
  • The <html> element encloses the entire HTML document.
  • The <head> section contains metadata about the document, such as character encoding and title.
  • The <meta charset="utf-8"> tag specifies the character encoding of the document as UTF-8.
  • The <title> tag sets the title of the document.
  • Inside the <body> section, the text "Object" is displayed, indicating the presence of an object.
  • The <object> element defines an embedded object with specified width, height, and data source.
  • The width and height attributes determine the dimensions of the embedded object.
  • The data attribute specifies the URL of the object to be embedded.
  • The HTML document is properly closed with the </html> tag.
