Dug a bit more into this.

<embed> is deprecated in 4.01 strict. I don't know if or which
browsers honour this if you're using the strict doctype/namespace.
(Don't really have time or inclination to test this out, myself.)
<embed> is back in HTML5. Maybe.... change your skin template to use
HTML5? That's really a wild ass guess.
