I like to use <h2> inside links.
This is invalid unless I use: <object<<h2>xxxx</h2></object>

Someone here decried the use of <object>

Am I committing a cardinal sin?

You may like it, but it is not valid.

That is not valid either.

Learn to like the standards. You will be happier in the end.

W3C Validator makes this objection:

Line 50, Column 6: document type does not allow element "H2" here; missing one of "OBJECT", "MAP", "BUTTON" start-tag

Does this not imply that one should supply what is "missing" ? Am I fool for supplying the "missing one" ?

Please, only humans reply. Ones with just a little tidbit of sense of humour/humor.
