Hi,

I have not done this before but user is asking a requirement that I should play a sound after some event has happened in their
HTML Page.

I find this a little amusing, but they have setup a large speaker system connected to the computer so that user would hear the sound.

I have been thinking, whats the best alternative in doing this?

I have been googling the net but found some really old solution. I dont know if there is a newer and better approach that others are using now
or *if* there is an API or jquery plugin for this.

Thanks.

Wait until HTML5?

Seriously, there's no pat solution. Most sound is currently done through Flash (ick) I believe.
