Wordpress definately allows embed and any HTML. It's setup to be easy for those who don't know HTML with the visual editor for inputting a blog entry. The visual editor restricts HTML usage. But the visual editor can be turned off and any HTML can be put in. You can see tests of embedded videos running on Wordpress 2 at http://www.utilities.cinegage.com/vpip-test-page/ and http://www.utilities.cinegage.com/lo-fi-saint-louis-flash-sample/ .
