the audio tag is for webpages shown in browsers we all love like iPad's Safari, Firefox, and IE9+.
i'm not sure what html5 is at this point; it's a lot more complex than when we had 2 browsers and 3 doctypes to contend with...
Ironically, firefox won't play MP3 in an audio tag, but will play wav just fine.
frustrating i know, but there are combos of browsers, formats, and code to work about everywhere; we can figure it out.
do you need it to work in IE, or is just firefox enough for this project?
