Subject: RE: PermaThread: Getting Mudcat MIDIs to Play
Jon, you may have something there. In my experience, Internet Explorer is less likely to have problems with incorrect HTML, but Netscape demands that everything be proper. I guess you can't fault Netscape for that.
This MIDI thing has been plaguing a number of people for a long time, so I'm hoping we can get to the bottom of it. I have always been able to play the MIDI files at Mudcat. In the past, I clicked on the "click to play" link and the MIDI played in the background
while I looked at the lyrics.
Sometime during the past year, things changed. Now when I click on a MIDI link, the browser switches to a blank window with a Quicktime control centered on it. Or, if I'm using Windows Media Player for MIDIs, a box opens on the side of my browser. If I want to read lyrics while the MIDI is playing, I have to open the MIDI in a new window and go back to the lyrics.
