Multimedia

Multimedia has become much more common on the Web during the past two years, for example the effects offered by use of Macromedia Shockwave files. These effects certainly can increase page appeal, but they're time consuming to download and active content such as JavaScript, and ActiveX present security questions. Keep these factors in mind when you're deciding which (if any) special effects to add to a page.

Understanding and Using Sound

Sound does have its drawbacks. If you're going to use it, keep it under control and remember that not everyone has the same audio tastes that you do. Actually, many people still think sound is a gimmick, and a fairly useless one at that. This will change when the Web becomes a fully powered information delivery system with short downloads and solid, informative audio content, but that time isn't here yet.
