The emacs browser has had the EMBED and LINK tags for quite a while. The
LINK tag is in the HTML 2.0 spec. It would be nice if the EMBED tag would
be included. The way I implemented it (ala an older HTML+ spec way back in
'93) is as follows:

<embed TYPE="somecontent/type">
data of somecontent/type
no wrapping/formatting
should be done at all

Something I added that wasn't in the HTML+ spec at the time was to add a
SRC attribute similar to the <IMG> tag, so

<embed TYPE="somecontent/type" SRC="someurl">

with no closing tag.
