as RTE HTMLarea is not HTML you got what you asked for: 
you got your HTML-code show in the frontend.

either you really use HTML-contentelement, where your code is delivered 
as entered or you have to switch RTE into 'source-code' mode.

1) RTE = Rich Text Editor = all formatting is done in background by 
pressing buttons. Every HTML-code is transformed to be shown in FE.

2) 'source-code' mode of RTE: 
 - can be activated/deactivated by pressing the button labeld '<>'
 - all formatting by buttons is deactivated, instead all (HTML-)
formatting is shown and can be edited.

in this mode you can edit your HTML-area entering an object-tag, 
BUT it is possible that it is removed in the moment the content-element 
is stored, because at that moment a clean-up is done. 
Therefore you have to declare the object-tag as a valid tag, which is not 
to be cleared.
