Example of <BGSOUND LOOP=INFINITE>

If you are using MSIE, and have a sound system on your computer, this page is probably really irritating you right now. It keeps playing a sound of someone saying "hello" over and over again. This enchanting effect was done using this tag:

<BGSOUND SRC="helloo.wav" LOOP=INFINITE>

You can stop the sound by hitting the "STOP" button in your browser.

<BGSOUND ...> is an MSIE extension. See the section on background sounds for information on code which puts background sounds on both MSIE and Netscape pages. Copyright 1997-2002 Idocs Inc.
