Creating an Index.htm & autorun.ini file to display contents and play a music file

I understand that I have to use a shell program.
I’ve created a table of contents file “index.htm” with MSWord.
I’ll use the shell program and shell commands in an autrun.ini file.
Is it possible to have a music file, MP3 or wav, play when the index opens?
Could I embed it in the html file?
Should I use a shell command to open a windoze default player to play the file?
If so, should I open the music file first or the index?
I don’t want the enduser’s music player to open over the index file displayed on their screen.
I don’t want the index file to have to wait until the music file stops playing to befor it is displayed.
