1. You pick a DTD which has that element and attributes in it.
2. You use <object> instead of <bgsound> (<object> is part of HTML 
4.01, <bgsound> isn't part of HTML anything)
3. You forget about using so-called background sound as it is decidedly 
unappreciated by the masses.

Your subject claimed you were making an error message suggestion, but I 
can't see one in your email. Did you forget?
