Also, keep in mind that the Windows Media Plugin on Mac works with IE only-
not with any other browser (Netscape, Mozilla, Chimera, Safari, Opera,
OmniWeb, iCab etc). This is due to some Microsoft issues, not to something
the browser makers can really fix.
Therefor, it will be a good idea to have a direct link to the .wma file so
people can copy/paste it into their WMP application, if they are using a
browser other then MacIE.
