BackGround Image Problem !!

Hi,

I am developing my home page in Front Page '98 and my home page has a background and in my PC I have two browsers Netscape Communicator 4.04 (professional) and Internet Explorer 2.0.

But the problem is when I see my homepage within Frontpage '98 (preview) or from the site where I upload my homepage I can't see my background in Netscape but Internet Explorer showed me my background  and its a same problem with background midi files also. I used a java script for my background sound coz I know the <BGSOUND> tag is not supported by Netscape so the background sound is working fine according to the browser but the player which contains the "STOP,PLAY,FORWARD,REWIND' button is not working with netscape...its strange coz in my java script I put both tags according to the browser type.

so I really need a help from anyone Coz I want to use background and I would like people can see my homepage with my background Image and Sound too no matter what browser they are using..

So please answer my both questions not only one ...

Thanks,
Zahid

It would be helpful if you posted the markup in question: There's nothing inherently unsupported about background images in NN 4.04 that will work in IE 2.0.

What filename are you giving your background file? IE4 likes filenames like ".\mybackground.gif>" but Netscape doesn't always like these.

Try checking the location of your background image again.  Sometimes FrontPage98 messes with the location and causes the image not to come up.

Are you "previewing" with Internet Explorer through FP98?  If so, then the problem may be as simple as capitalization.  Could you post the url, please?

Thanks pals,
Actually it was not FrontPage '98 problem it was my browser (Netscape) prefrences problem..hahaha.....coz there is a checkbox on "Always Use my Colors.Overide Document"
So I unchecked that and its working fine...

Thanks for the concentration..
But I have any another question which I posted with that background question and I havent recieved any comments on that question...
I asked that I want to play a background sound with a player with the buttons like "Forward","Rewind","Play","Stop"....but keep this thing in mind that I want to use this background sound with player in both browsers I mean...IE and Netscape...
So how can I do this ?

Thanks

<embed src="yoursong.mid" autostart="true" width="200" height="50" loop="true" controls="largeconsole" volume="50" hidden="false">

Here is the code for IE:
<bgsound src="yoursong.mid">

Of course, you can play with width, height, etc.  You can also add some elements to the BGSOUND, but from your question/conversation, it looks like you have it working in IE already.

One further comment - This is *not* javascript for the embedding of the sound.

bigelosCommented:
Do you mean in response to an event such as "OnClick", "OnMouseOver", or "OnLoad", etc?  I guess either way, the method is still the same, but if you can be more specific, I can give you a more specific answer.
