Play an audio file without the controller appearing?

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Hello, I want to play an audio file by clicking on an audio icon and
not having the page switch out underneath.  Right now the code I have
is ...

<title>Dictionary: homeostasis</title>
<link href="liveink.css" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet"/>
<div class="dictionary-area">
<span class="dictionary-word">homeostasis</span>
(<span class="dictionary-pos">Noun</span>)
<div class="dictionary-defn">The maintenance of a constant internal
state in a changing environment that is maintained by continually
making adjustments to the internal and external environment.</div>
<a href="homeostasis.mp3" target="new"><img src="audio.gif"
<div class="dictionary-close-window"><a
href="javascript:window.close()">Close Window</a></div>

The inconvenience is right now a new window is spawned to play the
audio., which contains the controller for playing the audio (complete
with pause, stop, and play buttons).  All my audio clips are less than
3 seconds in length..  How can I play the audio file without launching
the controller.  I don't care if there's no way to stop/pause the audio
once it's started.

Thanks for your help, - Dave
