1. we are having a website (xhtml) when validating the code we get
validation error about <embed src

2. see this page (http://disability-ecafe.net/node/320) embedding youtube
video at our page with youtube embed code, it trap the keyboard in loop of
video container and not let tab goes anywhere else. Which make our page
inaccessible for people who navigate with keyboard. (This problem appears
in Firfox 15, but work fine in IE 6).

and at youtube site I wasn't able to access the video at all by keyboard
navigation as tabbing jump the video.

What is the standard accessible way to embed youtube video and avoid the
above two problems.
