Traversing object elements in DOM

For various reasons, I'm using an object element linking to a PHP file instead of using an iframe. However, when I try to access a specific element within the object's file in the way I do for iframes [document.getElementById('iframe').contentWindow.document.getElementById('target')], I can't. What's the standard way to access the DOM within the object?

Thanks in advance,
