Yet another example of why we need demonstrations....

I'm trying to make my site usable in netscape.

http://www.pmld.org is getting rave reviews except from a netscape keeny who
says "You are another person tied to Mr Gates apron strings "

what tears to my eyes.

Could someone please tell me point me to a site that uses javascript to
enable mouse actions to play sounds in Netscape6?
I cannot seem to find liveaudio, and currently am using real audio and
beatnik, but I need code that will work in 'any' netscape browser.
I don't mind making it work in ie5.5 as well...

This is what I've not had luck with

for instance this one
http://home.netscape.com/computing/webbuilding/studio/demo19980715-4/index.h
tml#sound

>Here's an example. First, load the sounds. Then, listen to the world's
shortest question.
look for 'The Sound Object'

has a supposed interactive sound part as above, but it does not seem to
work...
----

another example is the code here: http://developer.irt.org/script/1664.htm
this claims to play a sound on mouseover, but does not on my machine.

----

however whilst the beatnik site
http://www.beatnik.com/software/beginners.html works it only does so for
people with this plugin.

liveaudio used to be a standard I believe, but I cannot seem to find it
anymore.....

thanks
