    Ok I put a stop link in for the midi file, the requirement is a midi that plays on page load with an infinite loop. Still does that so it should be ok.
    unfortunately until it is graded the cursor trail has to stay. Unless you know a way to set an option to disable it?
    graded?

    huh?

    what are you using to do this?

    I'm going to school for web design and graghic arts, basically we have an assignment at the moment which is to create a homepage to showcase everything we have done so far and have links to all of the other projects we have going. We also had to apply specific elements to the page.
    When you ask what I am using, do you mean what type of system?
    If so it's an old decrepid 1998 gateway p2, 128mb ram, w/ windows 98 installed. It's not capable of running everything I'm running on it and is in the process of dying. I'm getting a brand new one in a month so I'm not worried.

    The haunted house is all hand coded, good old fashioned <html>.
    The music is from midi files, coded into the page.
    Cost? No cost it's all on the school server.

    I don't have a choice, I'll lose 10% of my grade if I take it out.
    Hmmm, *starts to question instructors sanity* Why did he make this a requirement if they are so bad? I'm going to ask him that, right after he grades it.

    Doesn't look very good on Mozilla 1.4 under Linux (loads of incorrectly overlapping layers etc.), though I'm sure if I could be bothered to boot into Windows and use IE, it would work.

    Takes about two seconds on my (broadband) connection to load.

    "Infinity Web Design" isn't a good title, as you're not a web design company or something.

    I can't believe it, but I seem to be one of the very few to recognize Dust In The Wind here. lol. It used to be my ex-fiance and I's song, eh. Everything is dust in the wind there, too, though. I never thought I'd hear it on midi instruments. It sounds like elavtor music, but I'll hook up the Korg and see if it sounds better on more realistic sounding samples. You play it in manually, did you? We're definitely not in Kansas anymore.... ^_^

    Nice Site
    Loaded instantly over here. - just as short hiccup - blink of an eye, then Kansas and Pegasus.
