Attribute for <EMBED ...>
NAME = "text string"

NAME indicates the name of the embedded object. In most cases this attribute is not needed. However, some types of plugins can be controlled using JavaScript, or can communicate with each other, and those cases NAME comes in handy.

For example, the following code uses Netscape's LiveConnect features to play "hello" when the Hello link is clicked. If the browser is something beside Netscape, then the link works as a regular link. The sound will play a little sooner with Netscape, however, because it has already been downloaded. Note also that Netscape requires that if you use the NAME attribute you must also use MASTERSOUND.

this code produces this
<EMBED 
    SRC="../graphics/sounds/helloo.wav"
    HEIGHT=144 WIDTH=166
    NAME=MySound
    MASTERSOUND HIDDEN
    >

<SCRIPT TYPE="text/javascript">
<!--
function soundplay()
{
if (navigator.appName == "Netscape")
   {
   document.MySound.play(false)
   return false;
   }
else
   return true;
}
//-->
</SCRIPT>

<A 
    HREF="../graphics/sounds/helloo.wav"
    onClick="return soundplay()"
    >Hello!</A>
Hello!
