problem with find('object') in ie6

problem with find('object') in ie6

I have a problem with ie6 when searching for an inserted object. in jquery i do something like this:

var obj = $('<div></div>').html($('#embedded_video').val()).remove().find('object');

where in the embedded_video textbox i insert an object taken from youtube or so. This works great in FF and IE7&8 but does not seem to work in ie6. I tried to modify the command to look for something else like ...find('a') and it also works in ie6 so the problem only appears when i search for 'object'. Can anyone help find another method to do the search?
