Music link to hear sound

newbie mike to all,
trying to get a song title link to be heard.
used embed ( which doesn’t allow validation )
but it works. ( quicktime is default for me )
if your mark up code isn’t validated can you
still get your website up and running?
i am only using my browser for testing as of now.
tried the flash satay thing but it seems like it
is just for video? too complicated for me also.
tried the object thing too ( Michael Zajac )
but that also lost me.
Is there any way around this sound / video thing
that allows xhtml / html validation?

Hi Mick,

Validation has no bearing on whether or not a site will work in browsers. It’s just a guide.

Here are some other options for playing sound files:
