<p>The following example shows how the <code><a href=#the-param-element>param</a></code> element
can be used to pass a parameter to a plugin, in this case the Flash
plugin.</p>

<pre>&lt;!DOCTYPE HTML&gt;
&lt;html lang="en"&gt;
&lt;head&gt;
&lt;title&gt;Flash test page&lt;/title&gt;

This page requires the use of a proprietary technology. Since you
have not installed the software product required to view this
