Setting volume for non-embeded .WAVs

I know how to set the volume for 'embeded' sound files, but is there a command to preset the volume for non-embeded files which are selected using the href tag? I want visitors of my page to be able to hear the files they select without having to adjust the console slider bar. Is this possible?

Not from the way you would be linking to the WAV's. One way to "cheat" would be to embed a silent WAV (a few bytes) into the preceeding page, and set the volume from there.

But why would you want to do this anyway? Suppose the viewer has the volume on their machine low, but pumps it through their hifi at a higher volume? Or vice versa? Basically, you still wouldn't be able to accurately determine what the volume level would be on their side. As long as the WAV has correct amplification already, let the user worry about setting their own volume levels! =)
