    I am using Frontpage 2000 and I don't know how to make my MP3 files downloadable. If I just make a normal hyperlink to the MP3 file, will that automatically promp a download option for the user when clicked? Or is there something else I have to do in order for users to download the MP3 files from my site?

    Thanks

    Other than some fancy server-side scripting (even that I'm not sure about), I don't think you have control over it. You need to just tell your visitors to right-click the file and select Save Target As.

    mp3's for fun and profit

    I agree with Filburt. I used to be a radio producer and had to post stuff and download from the web all the time. Telling your users to use the "save target as" option will not only be easier on you as a designer, but also more reliable for people visiting your site.
    Another suggestion (if you're looking for some extra work) would be to create a small flash component with the .mp3 in it. You can get sound controllers from a lot of places and all you have to do is drag and drop it. Try FlashKit.com if you want somewhere to start.
