Netscape 3.0+ and MSIE 4.0+ allow using the embed tag.

<EMBED NAME="mySound" SRC="mySound.wav"
LOOP=FALSE AUTOSTART=FALSE HIDDEN=TRUE MASTERSOUND>

Once the sound is preloaded, Netscape has the option of using document.mySound.play() to play the sound.
With IE you might have to use something like
document.all['BGSOUND_ID'].src='mySound.wav'
with BGSOUND_ID additionally defined in
<BGSOUND id="BGSOUND_ID" LOOP=1 SRC="silence.wav">
where silence.wav is a silent sound file.

   The page is framed and the sounds I want to play are on an inside page in main frame, can I preload on index or menu frame so that the play as soon as person does mouseover on that page?
