OK, I have read the sticky and don't see my answer.

Can 'cda' files be included in a web page for playing in firefox as well as IE?

I have been given a selection of cda files for placing in a web page. The user is to be able to click on the track name and it should play. No video element to this project. I have tried the straightforward href but it doesn't want to play.

My code below brings up the dd list and the start button/progress bar but after saying it is 'Ready' and then, 'Connecting to media', it goes back to its default setting/appearance and doesn't play the track.

I would appreciate any tips you could give me.
