[wp-hackers] TinyMCE issues

So, I'm writing a plugin to make buttons to insert YouTube and Google 
Video videos into your posts. I'm doing it via ButtonSnap and it works 
fine for the non-WYSIWYG editor.

Here's an example generated code snippet:

<object style="width: 425px; height: 350px" 
data="http://www.youtube.com/v/hl2UUunlI2Q"><param name="movie" 
value="http://www.youtube.com/v/hl2UUunlI2Q" /><param name="wmode" 
value="transparent" /></object>

The problem is that when I put that into TinyMCE, it totally screws it 
up by adding line breaks:

<object style="width: 425px; height: 350px" 
<param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/hl2UUunlI2Q" />
<param name="wmode" value="transparent" /></object>

Before I resort to using a placeholder (like 
[youtube]hl2UUunlI2Q[/youtube]) at least for TinyMCE, is there way I can 
stop it from doing that? I just wanted to make this plugin a button 
generator rather than a dynamic replacer. :/
