Web Page Music question
I have music on my index page <bgsound> ..
Consequently the music will play on all pages of the website..
Is it at all possible to stop the music "automatically" when going to a new page or am I stuck with it until I leave the website?
(My website currently is playing Christmas music but one of the pages is an "Obituary page" and "Jingle Bells" seems a bit inappropriate, hence my need to stop the music while visiting this page).
Any help would be appreciated. thanxGlenvern

If I remember correctly you are using frames with the music source on the index. Have you considered placing the source in the "main" frame pages?

admin edit: the "latest post" on many pages does not like code placed too close to the top of the post. That should push it down enough
<embed src="file.wav" autostart=true loop=false volume=100 hidden=true width=142 height=58> <noembed> <bgsound src="file.wav"> </noembed> </embed>
*my attempt at trying to help*

Thanx Dave - Could you expand your suggestion a bit further please on how I get <bgsound> into the "main" of the "frameset" I can't see where it would go -
<frame name="main" src="mainpage.htm">
At the moment it is the first entry in the "index" after <head> and before the <framesets>...
If I put it into all <target="main"> pages the music restarts itself everytime I go into the these pages which is every page on the website, I would prefer it to run continuously throughout the website except for this one page.
I have tried "window.close()" which didn't work.
I have tried redirecting to a new URL but the old URL remains and still plays on happily, I just can't stop it..
Thanx cokes: - If I use <embed> I believe I will get buttons which I would have to use in order to switch off the music this would not make it automatic.. I may be wrong I haven't tried it yet..Glenvern

Perhaps I should get out of the <frameset> for that page can you tell me how to do that and how to get back in again?

You are obviously corrrect that the music would start anew with each internal link.
To get out of the frameset, add target="_top" to the obit link in the menu frame. To go back is a bit more work since they may click other links and not the index. You will have to make a new frameset for each link (index is already made), giving each link on the obit page the attribute target="_top".
