I seem to be having problems with IE not playing my band website intro page. It plays fine in Mozilla. Please note - I am not at all proficient in HTML - it's just i'm the only one in the band who could be bothered! Here is the code for the intro page...

<object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" width="666" height="666">
