This Java Script is designed
to help your pages load faster if you have midi files on your web page.
When your page loads using this script, it does not have to load the midi

to be in the same directory as your htm/html page. If you have your midi's
in a sub-directory, then the sub-directoty must be listed in the orange
area with the midi file, ie ('sounds/axelf.mid').
