QuickTime 7 doesn't respond to mouse events

QuickTime 7 doesn't respond to mouse events

Just a heads-up to multimedia webpage designers - the QuickTime 7 browser plugin won't play javascript mouse-controlled audio events in Windows XP. I don't know whether this is true in the Mac OS.

For example, this script, <onClick="document.sound.play()"> which plays an embedded .wav file perfectly well using any QT 6.x or Windows Media plugin, has no effect on QT7, just silence.

QT7 renders all pages with basic JS interactive mouseover audio useless. I've sent a notice of this bug to Apple; hopefully they'll address this issue at some point.
