Not really, you would normally use server side includes for this.
Perhaps the closest you can get to using HTML to do this is an inline class attribute with CSS that uses the 'content' property and the :before and :after pseudo-elements; not much use generally, but maybe useful for special purposes.
And, of course, for sighted visitors, you can make a pic of text (make it big enough so none of those visitors have trouble)!

But that's really not the point. The point is that inclusion of content with <object> (or with <iframe>) will not "get a page to load a chunk of text in exactly the same way that <IMG SRC> loads pix". It simply includes an external document, rendered in an isolated box.
