detect the browser type with JavaScript and decide upon that which method to use:

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript"><!--
var agt=navigator.userAgent.toLowerCase()
if this.ie   = (agt.indexOf("msie") != -1) {
  document.write('<BGSOUND>......') } else {
  document.write('<EMBED>....') }
//--></SCRIPT>

About the guest book: there is a very nice CGI script called wwwboard at http://www.scriptarchive.com : it's free and it comes with good documentation.

Please leave me a comment if you have additional questions.
