Playing a local mpeg file from a local HTML file...

Hi guys,

I've got a problem... I'm developing a webpage on my computer and I
can't get the links to my MPEG movies to work.  I want them to launch
in a Windows Media Player.  This is my code...

<TD vAlign=3Dtop align=3Dleft><BR><A HREF=3D"view_files/movie1.mpg"><=ADIMG
SRC=3D"view_files/" border=3D"0"></A></TD>

I've checked code on other websites (running on webservers) and it's
the same.  If I right click on the file and choose "save as" I can save
the file to another location on my hard drive so the link is true, but
when I click on the link Windows Media Player does not launch playing
the movie.  Can someone give me some help with this.

Thanks in advance.=20

Errrr, why is your mpeg within a <td> element? Is it tabular data? And why  
are you putting style elements in your markup?
Anyway, the real answer lies within your browser and it's plug-ins. Your  
tag-soup is (nearly) perfect.
