###@###.### has pointed out that the current handling of the "version" attribute in the embed tag in the new plug-in is incorrect. Currently we translate for example "application/x-java-applet;version=1.4" as "java_version=1.4*". From a semantic standpoint this is not correct and is also overly strict. It should be converted as "java_version=1.4+".
