Attribute for <EMBED ...>
CONTROLS = VOLUMELEVER | STOPBUTTON | PAUSEBUTTON | PLAYBUTTON | SMALLCONSOLE | CONSOLE

CONTROLS is another Netscape-only extension (MSIE has a similar attribute called CONTROLLER) . CONTROLS indicates what type of controls should be displayed for the sound object. Each type of control is best used with different values for the HEIGHT and WIDTH attributes, so we'll list the best value here.There are six possible values for CONTROLS.

Value Description Height Width
CONSOLE The default control. The browser should display a full-sized full set of controls: a start button, a pause button, a stop button, and a volume control (aka the "volume lever").

<EMBED 
    SRC="../graphics/sounds/1812over.mid"
    HEIGHT=60 WIDTH=144
    CONTROLS=CONSOLE
    >

SMALLCONSOLE The browser should display a set of controls which takes up less space. The controls displayed are the start button, the stop button, and the volume lever. The pause button is not displayed. SMALLCONSOLE takes up less vertical space than CONSOLE but is just as wide.
