Can anyone tell me how to tag a real audio sound file in html?  I tried to do it the same way as I do for a .wav & .midi file, but it won't work.  What am I doing wrong.  Here is the tag I tried:
<embed scr="filename" autostart=true width=144 height=74 loop=1>

Another question:
Does anyone know how to color the border of a table?
Thanks for your help.

> Does anyone know how to color the border of a table?

Start a <TABLE> with a "border" and a "background-colour".
Open a <TR> and a <TD>.
Start another <TABLE> with a "border" and a *DIFFERENT*
"background-colour".
Insert all your table-definition.
Close the inner-<TABLE>.
Close the <TD>.
Close the <TR>.
Close the outer-<TABLE>.

What you should see is a "frame", in the *FIRST* background-colour,
around your "inner" table.

You can't embed RealAudio in a web page, because as of yet, no browsers come with built-in RealAudio support.  Wav and MIDI work because the browsers can play wavs and MIDIs, but they require RealPlayer to be spawned to play RealAudio.  A possibility if you want this as background music is to spawn a second window which will auto-redirect to the RealAudio file, which, if the user has it installed, will spawn the RealPlayer to play the file.

Thanks for your help.  Instead of playing the sound in the background like we wanted, we have decided to just make it a link.  This works, just not as nice as the wav or midi because you really don't have the control.  It plays once when you click it & that's it.  

Thanks also for the border color.  I haven't had a chance to try it, but what you put looks like it will work.

Thank you,
Merry Christmas,
Nancy
