Description

User-Agent:       Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET CLR 1.1.4322)
Build Identifier: 

<object
classid="clsid:22D6F312-B0F6-11D0-94AB-0080C74C7E95">
<param name="FileName" value="sound.wav" />
</object>

Above object should produce a control to play the soundfile, and play it once 
while page is loaded.

<object
classid="clsid:22D6F312-B0F6-11D0-94AB-0080C74C7E95" width="0" height="0">
<param name="FileName" value="sound.wav" />
</object>

When using this one, the sound should be played once, but no control should 
appear.

When using IE6 at least (other IE versions not tried) the above object works 
correctly and is HTML 4.01 Compliant according to http://validator.w3.org 
validion service.

That's an ActiveX control ID.  That will only work in a browser that supports
ActiveX plugins -- IE, to be exact.

If you want your <object> to work with other browsers, you need to specify a
MIME type and the browser needs to have a plug-in to handle that type (or native
support for the type).  Listing an IE-only control ID will only work in IE.
