Weaving PageSounds into your Web page is a
cinch--all it takes is a few lines of HTML!
Following is the complete applet tag used to weave PageSounds into this
Simply place the PageSounds.class file (the Java applet) and .au format
audio files inside
the same folder as the Web page in which you wish to weave the applet,
construct an appropriate applet tag such as the one above using

||Sound(s) to play when mouse is outside the applet. The
value you supply is a string identifying the name of one or more.au (uLaw)
format sound files. If multiple sounds are specified, they are played in
order by default or randomly using the randomSounds parameter. In
any case, new sounds are played only when the mouse moves in/out of the
Note: The sound file(s) must reside in the same
folder as the PageSounds applet and the Web page you're weaving it into.
If more than one sound file is used, you must separate each with the pipe
Example using a single "out" sound:
Example using multiple "out" sounds:
Related PARAMETERS: outSoundLoop,
||Same as outSound parameter above, except this parameter
controls the sounds played when the mouse is moved inside of the
Example using a single "in" sound:
Example using multiple "in" sounds:
Related PARAMETERS: inSoundLoop,
||By default, sounds play through to the end and then
stop. Using these parameters, you can loop "in" and "out" sounds for
continuous play (when a sound is "looped", it is repeated when end is
reached rather than stopping).
Example of looping both "in" and "out"
||By default, sounds are played in the order they're
specified with inSound and outSound parameters. You can, however, use the
randomSounds parameter to play sounds randomly rather than in
Example of playing sounds randomly:
||By default, the currently playing sound will stop
playing before a new sound begins. You can, however, "mix" sounds together
using the mixSounds parameter.
Example of mixing sounds together:
||By default, no background color is used by PageSounds.
As a result, the applet will appear in a gray box when run under a
Java-savvy browser unless you specify a particular color. Using the backgroundColor parameter you can
specify up to 13 pre-defined colors by name (such as "red", "white"
or "blue"), or an unlimited number of colors using hexadecimal
When specifying colors by name, you can use the
cyan, gray, darkGray, lightGray, magenta, orange, pink, red, white, yellow

TIP: CLICK ON THE ARCS TO STOP/START
||By default, the PageSounds applet animates one or more "audio arcs"
when sound playing is enabled. You can, however, hide these arcs
altogether. This feature is useful if you don't want to allow the user to
disable sound playing, of don't wish for the animation to appear on your
