I've been looking for ages for a bit of javascript code to play an mp3 or wav file on my web site.

Can anyone help please?

for netscape, use:

function playSound(name)
{
onerror = null

var myMimetype = navigator.mimeTypes["audio/wav"];

if (myMimetype)
{
if (document.embeds[name] != null && document.embeds[name].IsReady())
{
document.embeds[name].play(false);
}
}
}
