Just my two cents worth, I do not like for music to start on Web pages. If I have
my speakers on, it interrupts others in the office. I also do not care for fancy
intro pages. Don't waste my time. I came to the Web site for information not to
be entertained.

I hate it even worse if there is no way to turn the music off.

Good morning,

I wonder if somebody could give some light about the next trouble:

I've build a Web with a small introduction in flash + many pages, all
in =

The client asked for some music in it, and I've tried a piece of 27 =
seconds long of J. S. Bach, in .mp3 (Its weight is big: 195K)

This music comes activated under a behaviour "on mouse move" into the =
main web page (just appearing after the index one)

The site is http://docsl.com

The music sounds realy nice but the client feels a problem:

The visitors should jump fast from the page containing the music to the
others, with the clear inconvenient that the music stops and begins =
again for stoping, and so.

As the pages includes many pictures, the time downloading problem is =
bigger when adding pictures+sound.

The client would like that once started the music, it plays along it's
27" independtly of the jumps the visitor does...

I don't know how to solve the problem as:

Client loves the music
I cannot re-make all the web in flash
The client don't want at all installing the music in a Pop-up

Is there any Java-script possibilitie solving this problem???

Many thanks in advance from Catalonia (Small country between Spain and
