How to play muisc on your web page


I am bulding a web page in Microsoft words with operating system xp. I have buld one other page without any problems in Words on my old system that had operating system 95. However, this time it will not allow me to add background muisc to the web page I am bulding. I keep getting a message that states: This object was created in HTLM Inline Sound.ctl. This application is not available to open the object. Make sure the applications is properly installed and that it has not been delected, moved or renamed. How do I fix this?

Thank you

Here's a link with instructions how to add music to a web page, see:

There are two tags for adding sound to your document, Internet Explorer 3.0's <BGSOUND> tag and Netscape's <EMBED> tag The <BGSOUND> play the background sound from your page That is when visitor visit your page, the sound will automatically play Netscape's <EMBED> tag is slightly different, you can use its attribute to select playing sound when the page is loaded or give the users an option to click whether they would like to hear the sound The sound console will appear in their page like this (Sound console will appear below, if you're using Netscape).
