Some ActiveX controls that shipped with Internet Explorer 3.0x and 4.0x areno longer included with Internet Explorer 5.
Page authors should not assume that these controls are present on a machinerunning Internet Explorer. The removal of these controls from the InternetExplorer installation demonstrates clearly why page authors should use theCODEBASE attribute on any OBJECT tag.
These controls are the Label control (ielabel.ocx), Popup Menu control (iemenu.ocx), Timer control (ietimer.ocx),and Marquee control (marquee.ocx).
Almost all of the functionality that these controls provide can be easilyachieved using Dynamic HTML. It is recommended that page authors replaceinstances of these controls in their pages with equivalent Dynamic HTML.
The following is a list of the controls that no longer ship with InternetExplorer, their class ID (CLSID), and the current location of thesecontrols. Use these URLs to specify the appropriate URL in the CODEBASEattribute of the OBJECT tag. (Alpha, x86, and MIPS versions are availablefor each control.)
This list also includes suggested alternatives for some of the controlsthat are no longer included with Internet Explorer.
