Hi again!

I should have added more value to my posting.  Here is the embed tag
for audio and how it is used within the HTML context.


However, as you might have all experienced, EMBED and OBJECT tags don't
work well with Internet Explorer anymore due to that case.  Now you'd
have to click the space engulfing the dimensions of the object or press
the spacebar to enable it.  Here's a workaround that would require

Add this script at the HTML source of the document, some parameters
should be changed.

function InsertObject()
document.write('<object width="700" height="120">\n');
document.write('<param name="movie" value="objectName.swf" />\n');

document.write('<embed src="objectName.swf" quality="high"
type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="700" height="120" / >\n');

To call the function, just add:

<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript"

to the part of the document you'd like the object to be placed.

Hope this helps.

Best regards,

Hi everyone

I have been trying to incorporate a sound file into a Dreamweaver HTML
page without much success so far. The route I have been using is via the
media plugin. The control panel shows but the sound file will not play.
Does anyone have any ideas.
