I don't know what M$ products use to build MIDI into HTML, but the right
way to do it according to HTML v4.01 (see http://www.w3.org/) is to use

13.3 Generic inclusion: the OBJECT element

 <!ELEMENT OBJECT - - (PARAM | %flow;)*
  -- generic embedded object -->
   %attrs;                              -- %coreattrs, %i18n, %events --
   declare     (declare)      #IMPLIED  -- declare but don't instantiate
flag --   classid     %URI;          #IMPLIED  -- identifies an
implementation --
   codebase    %URI;          #IMPLIED  -- base URI for classid, data,
archive--   data        %URI;          #IMPLIED  -- reference to object's
data --
   type        %ContentType;  #IMPLIED  -- content type for data --
   codetype    %ContentType;  #IMPLIED  -- content type for code --
   archive     %URI;          #IMPLIED  -- space separated archive list --
   standby     %Text;         #IMPLIED  -- message to show while loading
   height      %Length;       #IMPLIED  -- override height --
   width       %Length;       #IMPLIED  -- override width --
   usemap      %URI;          #IMPLIED  -- use client-side image map --
   name        CDATA          #IMPLIED  -- submit as part of form --
   tabindex    NUMBER         #IMPLIED  -- position in tabbing order --

   Start tag: required, End tag: required.
