Embeding a User Control in a web page

I know that I can create and compile an OCX and use the <object> tag in a web page to embed the control.  But the thing that I don't get is this: the only parameter in the <object> tag is "classid" why can't I just use: <object src="myobject.ocx"></object>? I want to be able to create a bunch of controls, upload them to a web server, and have a web page display the controls! Please let me know how I can do this.
Thanks,
Josh

The only snag with this approach is that your page can only be used by Microsoft clients. Are you sure you want to go that way?

for this purpose you need to do the following things.

1. build your activex control and create cab file for deploying on net.

2. using lpktool coming in visual studio cd, create a licence file dont forget to include all the third party controls while creating license file.

3. in html add code like this


<OBJECT
 CLASSID="CLSID:5220cb21-c88d-11cf-b347-00aa00a28331" >
    <PARAM NAME="LPKPath" VALUE="yourlicencefilename.lpk">
</OBJECT>


<OBJECT ID="FEN0100"
CLASSID="CLSID:E92B40E8-786A-11D6-9AB3-00A0B00D4CE1"
CODEBASE="yourcontrol.CAB#version=1,0,0,2">
</OBJECT>

I'll try all those things later today, but how do I get the clsid from my OCX's? i.e. I build an OCX and want to insert but I do not know where to find that OCX's classid! Where is it?

appari - I tried your suggestions, they work great!
Thanks,
Josh

p.s.: will this only work on IE on a PC or will it also work in Netscape on a PC? The user MUST be on a PC to be able to use these controls right?
