Hi SStewart and all,  Adding audio files is fine as far as it goes,  
but it presents problems for those who cannot take advantage of the  
audio.  At any rate, if you ad audio you have to caption it and if  
you are going to go to all that trouble, you may as well provide the  
info on the site inn html.

Hi Elaine

It depends what the header does. If it is just 'eye-candy' and the  
information it refers too is contained in the rest of the web page in  
(X)HTML then you shouldn't have any problems.  If not then you could  
use audio files to add meaning a screen reader might miss.
