    I have a click on link on my web page that plays a music file. When I first created the link it played fine, but after a couple of times I get the following message "the requested URL /~dhentho/Moonlight and Roses.mp3. was not found on this server."

    "Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an Error Document to handle the request."

    I haven't a clue as to what this means. Can someone educate me? I'm very limited on computer savvy. Also can someone tell me what is a good open source free WYSIWYG editing program?

    i'm only learning about making sites right now but i think you should try to rename the file so that there isn't any spaces, just try it, it might work

    and i didn't know you could link songs like that o_O?

    Thanks Jeiuy4,

    I tried replacing the spaces with   and it works as far as the spacing goes, but the file still doesn't play.

    Just discovered that the &nbsp tag is incorrect. It should be %20. That seems to work.

    Wrong!!! That only worked a few times and then it quit. I finally solved the problem by linking to my web site instead of to the web page. Check it out at http://donhenthorn.com. By the way,. I am going to completely redo the old website to get rid of the Netscae corruption that seems to happen all the time.
