Music ON/OFF on Web Page

My default page plays a .mid Music File  say Music1.mid
Default.html

I need an option button on the default.html page, to turn Music On/Off....But also (for the session the user is logged in, stay with the setting)!!

Ie. whe they return from another page , back to default.html, the music stays on/off , depending on the original selection made previously.

Appreciate any advice, if this is possible..

It is bad manners (or Netiquette) to play music without asking.  Keep your Home Page as free of music, photographs (i.e., JPEG), video (e.g., Flash), and other long-to-load enhancements as possible.  If you want to show a sample of a band's work add a link to another Page of musical excerpts.

Cookies could be used to keep your user's preferences; that's one very good use of them!

Try this...

 <BASE HREF="http://(PATH)/">

Add this as the last statement in the page heading:

<EMBED SRC="(PATH-SUFFIX)/MUSICNAME.mid"
 AUTOSTART=false LOOP=2 AUTOLOAD=false
VOLUME=25% HEIGHT=60 WIDTH=144 CONTROLS=console>

Gives reader the option to listen or not listen.

This question has been abandoned. Would the experts please indicate how
this should be closed out. Is there a comment which should be accepted?
Should the points be split? Should it be reduced to zero points and PAQed?
should it be deleted?  In the absence of direction, the default will be
for me to delete.

TIA for helping to clean up the old questions.

My suggestion above worked for me at my website.  Maybe it would work for him, also.  Perhaps he tried it "on Monday" and it did work...

50 points does not merit a dissertation or tutorial on cookies when there are books++ and sites++ available on the topic.

pleasenospam did give a good answer and example.

Thanx.  Glad my frustrating experiences helped somebody.  It took me a long time to figure out how to do this, with arguments with two different ISPs.
