    ok, so after a few months of owning my first mac, i am now a .mac member and i am working on a iWeb page. (web.mac.com/chaseardoin). i just have one question about iWeb. I have added a song to my page via the media button. and now the audio file comes onto the page (looking like a quicktime UI, with a 'add image' above it) i totally hid the entire sound file behind an image on my page and i want it to play automatically when someone loads my page, without hitting play. is this possible?

    As a web user, I urge you not to have something automatically play when the page is loaded. I beg and plead that you reconsider.

    I would discourage that as well. It could cause many problems for people visiting your page, especially if they are using dial-up.

    I would also advise you to, at the very least, display the quicktime bar at the bottom of the page, so the viewer can start and stop the audio as they please.

    ...But to answer your question, I don't believe it's possible.
