The <noembed> tag is included to support browsers which don’t recognize the <embed> tag. For example, use <embed> to display a movie, and <noembed> to display a single JPG image as shown
<embed src=”/sound/sample.mid” width=”100%” height=”60″ >
<noembed><img src=”sample.jpg” ></noembed>
Another example to play a flash file is
<embed src=”/flash/sample.swf” width=”100%” height=”250″ >
<noembed><img src=”image.jpg” alt=”image.jpg” /></noembed>
