    Embed failure

    The following embed code had been working in XP for some time but now it only displays a red x in the upper left hand side of an outline of the audio window. ???

    <EMBED SRC="vandyke.mp3" HEIGHT=90 WIDTH=250 autostart="false" loop="false">

    That is NOT valid.
    Try this:
    Code:
    <embed src="vandyke.mp3" height="90" width="250" autostart="false" loop="false" />

    Embed code works in Firefox

    Mozilla Firefox accepted the code I had and it works!!

    Nothing to wonder as your current code itself is a soup of deprecated tags, see the errors in your markup at http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=ht...Inline&group=0
