What does "Embed" mean?

To embed something in a web page means to call one piece of a web page from somewhere else; typically an image or video or even an entire HTML page. Here's a sample, embedding some text within a box .

<embed type="text/html" src="snippet.html" width="500" height="200">

Generally speaking, it is better practice to use the <figure> tag for images or videos, instead of embedding such things, like this:

<figure class="figure">
<img src="..." class="figure-img img-fluid rounded" alt="...">
<figcaption class="figure-caption text-end">A caption for the above image.</figcaption> </figure>

Even using the venerable <img> tag or <iframe> tag is better coding practice than embedding things.
