Well I just tried posting the exact same thing in the test forum with a closing tag and it works. Looks like Microsoft was wrong. Gotta go, bye.

AHA!!!

Here's the code, without the brackets:
(embed src="" autostart="false" height=30 width=180)(/embed)
If you don't put quotes around the URL it doesn't work. Someone recently told me that I would be putting quotes around almost everything in HTML but I didn't learn my lesson apparently. The earlier embedded sound file now works. But I can't see Roxanne's signature picture, heh heh.

Why not just make it a link then? Embedded audio sucks anyway, if people want to hear it, make 'em click it first. Then there's also no problem with jiggies, cause it'll just download to cache and then kick a media player into gear.

I've tried to embed players on my ezboard a while back and gota message saying object tags aren't allowed. Looking at your code i feel like a dumb ass for not thinking of that. I am immortal.

1) M$ was wrong?! What's going to happen next?? Will the sky turn blue? Will apples fall down instead of up?
Never trust M$ to know jack about proper HTML. If you want to know valid HTML, use the W3C websites. www.w3schools.com/ and www.w3.org/
Check this page, particualrly the "try it" link in the embed tag section. www.w3schools.com/media/m...sounds.asp
You can get away with closing the embed tag by ending it with [space]/> instead of just > (Just like the img, br, hr tags, and any other tags that don't need to be closed in HTML, but must be closed in XHTML.)
2) Yeah, I noticed some issues with using quotes and not using quotes. I can't try it here, but on the other board and in my HTML test, it seems to work best if you put the URL in quotes, but do not put quotes around the word "false" in "autostart=false". Part of the problem here is with ezboard. Most boards (including invision, phpBB, vbulletin, etc) don't display HTML properly when it's used in posts. I know vbulletin screws up table arrangements, and I know that in the early days, ezboard didn't allow quotes around URLs in tags.

Now I've got to go delete those stupid plugins so I don't get plagued with annoying audio on websites....

I have a feeling I should be glad I didn't bother to get the plug-ins
