I'm new to the whole concept of HTML Validation, so please forgive my ignorance...

I'm starting to go through my pages (which were written in HTML 3.2, designed to look best when viewed on an Amiga) and make them HTML 4.0 compliant.  I ran my home page (http://www.citicom.com/~jimmymac) through the validator at http://validator.w3.org and one of the things it came up with was problems with BGSOUND.  So I changed it to use the EMBED command, and I'm still having problems (in particular with the attributes for it and the fact that element EMBED is undefined).

So I'm confused -- do I go with EMBED or BGSOUND (or is there another option?) and if so, what's the best way to get around this problem?

The rules have changed...start getting paid to surf the web!
Earn up to $12.50 a month just doing what you normally do!
Get your friends to sign up and YOU get paid when THEY surf!
And when THEIR friends sign up, YOU get paid!
And so on...and so on...just like that shampoo commercial!
Mention me as a reference when you sign up and I'll be eternally grateful!
