Sorry about my ignorance, but how will

<img src="http://example.org/image.jpg"; />

get rendered if converted to

<img src="http://example.org/image.swf"; />

for example?

Needn't there be <object> for Flash to be handled? I am curious as I never
knew such options existed. I worked with Flash in the past, but never
thought crawlers (at the time) bothered to interpret it. I also didn't
realise that one object type could be replace with another...
