    I want to be able to play background music on my web-site, but I want the music to continue to play even when the page is changed.

    Then I want to be able to turn the background music off at a lter point.

    Any suggestions.

    Right now I am just using a quicktime movie and embed command in the html page. The problem is one the page is changed the music goes off.

    Thanks!

    Bingo khaki!! (y) Thats precisely what I was about to suggest. Frames!! But a value in tag will have to be specified so that music plays continuously and doesn't stop after playing once. Don't remember which one. Haven't done that since quite some time.

    Another alternative is the have the same background music in every page. But that will not make the transition smooth and music will restart every time you load another page.

    Have a look at http://www.24hourhtmlcafe.com/ Here in one of the hour lessons, the author has given some tips about background music in HTML pages. Just find it out.
