pass values between html and embedded svg file

it looks like there are ways to pass values between the html file and svg file that i have embedded within the document using url parameters:


in html file:



<object type="image/svg+xml" data="button.svg param1=value1&param2=value2"></object>


in svg file:




// get param elements from referencing object element 
  var params = document.defaultView.location.href.split("?")[1].split("&");
  // split name/value pairs
  // find elements that need to be changed, then set values to to parameter value



here's the page i'm referencing:


SVG Reference


this is a snippet using the <object> tag.  has anyone done this for the <embed> tag and got it to work in webworks?  is there something i need to add in the config.xml file?  basically when i make a selection in my menu on the html side, i want that value passed to the svg to update the variable i selected, let's say.


many thanks on any help provided!
