How do I play wav files in HTML?

This is a campanion question to my question yesterday "wav files don't play correctly in IE 6.0".

I guess I'll just start from scratch.

How do you play wav files in HTML that will work with ALL current major browsers (IE 7, IE 6, IE 5 & Firefox)?

OK, I can get that to work, but it opens up a "Real" player control that I don't want. How do I suppress that?

Thanks

How do I disassociate it so that it just plays WITHOUT opening Real player or any other player?

it has to be played by a media player.

windows media player (defualt) and quicktime will play embedded, meaning they wont open up their entire gui player to play the music.

to change the file association:

To all:

The answers received so far are not acceptable.

I have oversimplified the question . I have a web site with over 100 pages that play sound clips.

I NEVER before had this issue of it opening up "Real Player", it just played the sound.

Now NONE of them work & NOTHING has changed.

I don't get it.

I will start a new question.

that is your pc, not the website.

my answer, answers your question on how to embed wav files in a web page.

your new problem has to do with windows, not web development.

you have installed real player, and it has associated itself with playing wav files.

you need to reassociate wav files with another player, or just uninstall real player, because theres really no reason to have it.
