Playing Sound without JavaScript

Question: Can I play a sound file without using JavaScript?

Answer: Yes, you can play a sound by specifying the sound file's URL as a hyperlink destination, for example, <A HREF="mySound.mid"> (click here to try it).

When the user clicks the hyperlink, the browser will open a separate sound control window. The user will then have to close this window manually. What's worse, every time the user clicks the hyperlink, the browser will open a new sound control window - even though there might be several other audio windows already playing the same file!
