In Netscape the midi player hides with my code but not in IE...what's missing?

<BGSOUND="infsqd1.mid" AUTOSTART="true" LOOP="TRUE" WIDTH="0" HEIGHT="0" HIDDEN="TRUE">
<EMBED SRC="infsqd1.mid" AUTOSTART="true" LOOP="true" HEIGHT="0" WIDTH="0" HIDDEN="true">

all you gotta do is enter the code:
<BGSOUND SRC="infsqd1.mid" LOOP=99>
you don't have to put the loop value only if you want it to go on for a while. That should do it, you should have background sound in Internet Explorer.

Sorry but that's not the right answer.  I already have background sound as shown.  Re-read the question so you understand it.  I'll try adding controls=false and see what happens.

Didn't work...IE is still showing the controls for the midi player.  It didn't do this before...it started once I downloaded MS's new windows media player from microsoft.com

Try HEIGHT=1 and WIDTH=1 for the <BGSOUND> tag, I don't think 0 is a valid value for those attributes.

Also, shouldn't you have <NOEMBED> and </NOEMBED> around the <BGSOUND> tag?

<embed src="infsqd1.mid" width=0 height=0 controls=false autostart=true loop=true>

This will work in IE and NS... (tested on IE 4.x and NS4.x and with the new media player from Microsoft)

no need for BGSound.
