actually this is an internal website for view by other computers that are
macs and have quicktime, so no worries about computers and what is

but if i call the quicktimeplayer through a postermovie in javascript, it
opens the quicktimeplayer. but i just don't know how to do this through
text. perhaps i have to create a text file and call the quicktime player
though this file?
