Hi. I got an email from you guys (reproduced below) as a result of my question posted to the newsgroup: comp.infosystems.www.authoring.html, so I am reposting it here:

Can anyone tell me if this is an allowable way of auto-initiating a realaudio stream automatically into a Netscape Browser... and if not, how could I do this? (I haven't been able to figure it out yet). Most of the posts that I've seen regarding having sound autostart have to do
with Midi or Wav files.

Also, could anyone tell me where I might find the archive and/or FAQ for this group?

Cheers & Thx

Use the tag called <IMG SRC=""> or the ones others have suggested for .midi and .wav files.

You can also use:

<META HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh" CONTENT="1"; URL=mysound.ram">

Which will send the sound 1 second after the page to the client.

The main clue is that the user has a Real Audio plug in, and has configured Netscape to use that plug in as a helper application for Real Audio files.

The settings for helper applications are under Options/General Preferences and under the Helpers tab.
