Hi Henning -

A couple of things:

IE5 supports HTML+TIME as originally submitted to W3C. It does not support
SMIL language documents, or SMIL Boston's HTML+SMIL. I would not expect it
to gag on the SMIL doc as you describe, but will pass this along to the
browser team.

IE 5.5 support for HTML+TIME includes most of the features in the latest
working draft of the HTML+SMIL language profile of SMIL Boston. The
HTML+SMIL language profile is the integration of SMIL Timing, media, content
control, transitions etc. with XHTML. As such, HTML is the host language
(i.e. the top level element is HTML and not SMIL), and HTML/CSS does the
layout. Otherwise, the media and timing syntax looks the same.

See also: http://msdn.microsoft.com/workshop/Author/behaviors/htmltime.asp
and http://www.w3.org/TR/smil-boston/html-smil-profile.html

The syntax example you included below should be supported in SMIL language
players.

Patrick

We have tried this aout with IE5 and discover strange behaviour and
Dr.Watson events with the following code
<smil>
   <head>
      <meta name="title" content="Sdream"/>
      <meta name="copyright" content = "Henning Timcke, Ideen Werft22 GmbH
1989 - 2000"/>
  <layout>
         <root-layout height="512" width="640" background-color="#ffffff"
/>
       <region id="video" z-index="2" left="0" top="0" width="640"
height="512" fit="fill"/>
</layout>
   </head>
   <body>
     <par>
  <video src="../mpeg/sdream_nosound.mpg"  clip-begin="00.00s" clip-
end="6.35s" region="video" fill="freeze" />
        <audio id="04track4" src="../mp3/04. track4.mp3" begin="00.00s"
end="06.35s"/>
 <audio id="05track5" src="../mp3/05. track5.mp3" end="06.35s"/>
 <audio id="01track1" src="../mp3/01. track1.mp3" begin="03.00s"
end="6.35s"/>
   </par>
   </body>
