Yes, you are correct that looking at it in RealPlayer it works fine.  But
when viewing the presentation through IE or Netscape, the hot spots don't
line up correctly (for instance, there are hotspots in the blank lines under
the words "Vorspiel I", "Vorspiel II", and "Intermezzo" and the other
hotspots that go with text are off by one line).

I just had a look at it and it seems fine to me.  Your code says:

<br/><a href=command:seek(00:12:29.493) target="_player">Wagner: 'Euerer
Magnifizenz Verzeihung'</a>

when my mouse goes over that link, in the top left hand corner of real
player, the seek command appears with the correct time position, and when
you click on it, it does say that time position in the top right hand of the
player (where the current time is located).  However it seems to be silent
at that point.  Nothing looks untoward - however I don't know enough about
that type of music to comment any further.

Subject: Real Text hot linking problem


I am having a strange problem with RealText in a SMIL presentation.  I
wonder if anyone could help.  Here is the presentation online:


The problem is that the hot spot of the links are not always lining up
properly with the text that corresponds with the link.  For instance,
clicking on the words "Ostervesper und Fruhlingskeimen" does indeed initiate
the command to seek and play at the correct spot.  But clicking on the words
"Wagner: 'Euerer Magnifizenz Verzeihung'" actually initiates the command to
seek and play the following track: "Faust: 'Also lasst die Studenten ein'".
It seems to have something to do with my inserting non-linking text for the
section titles of the opera.

Here is the markup of the RealText file that goes with the first audio file:


<pos y="0"/>
<font size="+0" color="black">
