Hello,

I want an image and sound(any format) to load and play simultaneously
in my HTML or the sound should play only after the image is loaded. Is
this possible?. Pls let me know how.

Regards,
Minchu

None of your site viewers do. Please reconsider.

Yes.

Look up the EMBED tag, but please decide not to use it.

EMBED is not valid HTML. Use OBJECT unless EMBED is necessary to support
older technology.

Hello,
Thanks for the answer. Suppose I have an image of 20K and the sound of
5K, the sound starts playing before the image downloads. I don't want
this to happen, the sound should play only after the image is loaded.
Kindly tell me how do I do this.

Regards,
Minchu.

Firstly, Please *DO NOT* top post, it's not appreciated by many in these
newsgroups.

Secondly, try using something like Macromedia Flash, but have the sound
OFF by default, with a clear option for the user to enable it if they
wish. Please consult a Flash tutorial, newsgroup or other resource for
help on how to create this, it's not an html question. You can embed
flash in a standards compliant way using only <object> [1], <embed> is
not required, except to support Netscape 4.x, but no-one use that now
anyway. But you should also provide suitable alternate content, so it
won't matter if it's not supported.

Flash content suffers from poor accessibility and is not available on
certain platforms. There are occasions where the use of Flash cannot be
avoided to create certain features, this isn't one of them.
