    Default Parsing & handling of <object> and <param> tags

    Hi all,

    I'm working on allowing people to paste certain embedded video code into a wysiwyg / html editor we've built with the help of (amongst others) javax.swing.text.html.HTMLWriter.

    I'm facing the following problem here:

    When i try to parse the <object><param></param></object> piece, it removes the <param> tags, and incorporates these in the <object> tag. For example:

    XML Code:
    <object width="300" height="250"><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param></object>

    XML Code:
    <object width="300" height="250" allowScriptAccess="always"></object>
    All param tags get converted into the object tag as String attributes. Problem with this is that the allowScriptAccess attribute is not a valid attribute of the object tag.

    Is there any way to prevent this conversion so it will retain the <param> tags?

    Thank you in advance.

    Everything you need is at least implicit in javax/swing/text/html/

    Curiously, its documentation says the PARAM tags are handled by HiddenAction,
    but the code actually has them handled by ObjectAction:
    Java Code:
    tagMap.put(HTML.Tag.PARAM, new ObjectAction());
    and ObjectAction does indeed stuff the PARAM values as attributes of the surrounding OBJECT.

    The HTMLDocument code suggests subclassing HTMLReader:
    To change the structure one
    can subclass <code>HTMLReader</code>, and reimplement the method
    getReader(int) to return the new reader implementation.
    Unfortunately I haven't time today to try this, but it should be straight forward.
    I think the subclass just needs to have a constructor like:

    Java Code:
    public MyHTMLReader (int offset) {
            super(offset, 0, 0, null);
            tagMap.put(HTML.Tag.PARAM, new HiddenAction());
    or maybe some newly devised TagAction instead of HiddenAction.
