Exercises

  • If you include multimedia elements that require special players, you might need a special page to help people understand and set up what they need to make the most of your site. A link to that page should be prominently located near the top of your home page, steering newcomers aside just long enough to give them a clue.

  • The techniques and tags covered in this hour for embedding media also work with Virtual Reality Modeling Language (VRML) files. To find out how you can use VRML to put interactive three-dimensional scenes and objects in your Web pages, check out the VRML home page at http://home.netscape.com/eng/live3d/howto/vrml_primer_index.html.
