    Is it my imagination or is Internet Explorer handling objects differently
    recently?
    For example with embeded objects and applets there is a "click to activate
    this control" message.
    That's new isn't it?
    In the example linked below IE does not start downloading the audio until we
    click play
    (even though: <param name="autoStart" value="True">)
    but in Firefox it plays automatically because that's what <embed> does
    unless you include autoplay="false" as a property

    Yep, that was part of a recent IE update (or downgrade...). Google
    for "eolas patent internet explorer" to get some background.
