xhtml iframe object to work in firefox and IE

Last Modified: 2013-11-19
Hi all,

I'm using the code below to embed a webpage inside my webpage:
<object  data="http://www.google.com" type="text/html" style="width:516px;height:437px" standby="Information">
   <img src="descript.jpg" alt="more information" longdesc="apage.html" />

This code is great because validates w3c (xhtml strict) and wai, and works for Firefox and Safari. BUT it does not work for any version of Internet Explorer. How can I fix that?
