Microsoft's Scriptlets

With version 4 of Internet Explorer, Microsoft also introduced another new technology known as Scriptlets. Microsoft calls Scriptlets "components for the Web." Although not technically a part of Dynamic HTML, Scriptlets enable you to create small, reusable Web applications that can be used in any Web page. Scriptlets are created using HTML, scripting, and Dynamic HTML. To include them in an HTML document, use the <OBJECT> tag.

What is meant by "Web component?" A software component is a self-contained piece of software designed to be used within a container application through a clearly defined interface. ActiveX Controls and Java applets represent two examples of Web objects that act as components within a browser. Until now, it has been possible to obtain some component functionality with HTML scripting by using the SRC attribute of the HTML <SCRIPT> tag. You could also achieve some measure of reuse either by making use of server-side includes or by simply cutting and pasting from one document to another.
