Many scientific publications now include multimedia material, either as an electronic supplement or embedded within publication files; chapter deals mainly with such embedded material. Multimedia objects can be integrated into web pages since a very long time. The HyperText Markup Language (HTML), developed in 1990 by Tim Berners-Lee at CERN and now available as HTML5, the fifth version of the HTML standard, was designed to allow authors to provide not only text, images and interactive forms, but also audio and video, within a single (web)page.
