That's exactly what I'm trying to do. MS isn't going to include OGG in
their player unless users are aware that it's a feature worth having,
and that won't happen if they'd never heard of it. We have to start
somewhere. My site has both MP3 and Ogg files on it and I'm at pains to
(a) to explain what Ogg is and (b) to make it clear that it isn't a
linux-only format (yes, people do believe that)
Actually the isuue of DRM and that Ogg will never be affected by it
might be a good point to make in that context.
