Internet Explorer users: Did you notice the dialog box that said "Click to run an ActiveX control on this webpage"?

An April, 2006 update of Internet Explorer provides remediation of issues in a lawsuit regarding activating ActiveX controls on Web pages. As a result, a user must click on this dialog box before the page will finish rendering. The EMBED tag causes the ActiveX control to appear that will play the music.

If this would make your Website too annoying, it is possible to include an ActiveX control dynamically after the Internet Explorer thinks the page is loaded and is no longer checking for such things.

Here is how to do this

This will work on all browsers, so you might want to do it this way!
