A full-sized Quicktime player page has somehow inserted itself into my website corrupting a link. This occurred while removing an MP3 sound byte from the page in question. Now when linking to that page the QT player shows instead of the desired page. This occurs while using any browser, it appears. Sometimes the desired page will appear momentarily, then switch. Sometimes the player appears instantly. Link is properly assigned. All code is clean, both locally and remotely (server). Both pages affected, the page containing the link and the assigned page have been scrubbed and resend three times. Have no idea why this is happening. Any ideas?

    Maybe if you provide the URL someone will have a look and may spot the problem.

    Interesting. I'm not a web developer, but the W3C markup validation service is reporting trouble with an attribute related gto your red-tailed hawk mp3:

    Line 130, Column 110: there is no attribute "ONLOSECAPTURE"

    In Dreamweaver you need to edit this page.


    Go to Code view


    body onload="MMcontrolSound('play','document.CS1182392681094','sounds/Red_TailedHawk.mp3')"

    replace with


    That piece of HTML is causing the browser to load the music. Removing it stops the page reloading.

    Personally I would rewrite the page from scratch rather than trying to edit it further.

    The OP may have to learn HTML/CSS/JavaScript.

    The other errors in the validation page are probably only important within the strict specification.

    Ah, many thanks Roger. (I was pretty sure I had been heading up the garden path after iFelix's response. Good to know what the implications of the markup validation results actually were in this case.)

    Many thanks to all for rescuing the OP from me.
