Welcome to webmasterworld :)
Can you post a short code snippet so we can see how you have linked to the audio + what browser are you using?

Thanks for the welcome :)
heres the code its in the middle of a table
<td><a href="http://example.com/satRday.rm"><font face="impact" color="blue" size="+2"><center> satRday </center></font></a></TD>
<td><a href="http://example.com/m3u"><font face="impact" color="blue" size="+2"><center>fri080505
the m3u and rm files read as such
i have found that i can not use my domain name for the mp3 and the ram-ra extensions are mixed up.
im currently trying to rewrite everything using css just to clean things up but i dont see how any that would make the browser go blank.
again thanks for the help

Don't worry about the post. You can read more in the Terms of Service [webmasterworld.com]
I have recreated your problem here - I don't have the same issue you describe - the audio file opens in my audio player within the page - In my case it's quicktime (firefox).
From what I can gather some audio files require the server mime type to be set up to play them - this is evident for mp3 files. Other problems with mp3 files might occur too like firewall blockage.
You could consider two other options: The Embed tag - works well across most browser/system/network combinations.
The Object tag - which doesn't because of Internet Explorer's lack of support.
Ironically the Embed tag is deprecated and is not standards compliant but the Object tag is.
So the choice is up to you, use <object> - it's standards compliant code with lousy support or <embed> with wider support but invalid.
There is one option to make the object tag work - a technique that nests object tags that's valid html and is supported in IE and other browsers - I have never used it though as I don't do much with Audio - I'll see if I can dig up the bookmark.

Thank you limbo. its funny, i dont think i know as much as i think i know these days. if you come across any links to
"a technique that nests object tags that's valid html and is supported in IE"
that would be great. i will try a little googl-fu on it.

so i think i got it!
really simple, i was linking using the full ULR in my link.
all that was needed was to drop the domain name
anyways thanks for the help
