I was just wondering if the section on the Silverlight.js might need to be updated based on the seeming move to the <object> tag as the primary/preferred solution for embedding Silverlight since beta 2, and the current issues with Firefox 3.

Re: Silverlight.js vs. Object
Hello,

The section on Silverlight.js is staying. Personally, I have not had any problem with Firefox 3. The reason why Silverlight.js is covered instead of the <object> tag approach is two-fold. First, the createObject[Ex] functions create an <object> or <embed> tag. Second, the Silverlight.js file provides additional functionality that is very valuable. These two reasons explain why the Silverlight.js approach was used in place of the <object> or <asp:Silverlight ... /> approaches.
