New Tumblr music player code?

Tumblr recently switched out their flash-based music player with a new, more mobile-friendly one. That's good, except the new one is devastatingly ugly and has totally different proportions. I'm not even sure it's displaying correctly - the arrow is off-center, the text looks wonky. I have been trying in vain to find ways of fiddling with its attributes, but the ones exposed are very limited. Has anyone else noticed this problem with the look, and has anyone had any success in customizing it? [more inside]

Seeking understanding and tools I need to design a homepage that is a dynamic bar chart.

This weekend I'm setting up a website for an academic event. I'd like the homepage of the site to have large, clickable progress bars that display the number of posts for each of the subpages (News & Announcements, Blog, Events, etc.). As more posts are added to each of the subpages (posts would likely be sorted and displayed by category and tag), its respective progress bar takes up more screen real estate and the tally count listed on/near it increases. Basically, I want the homepage to look like a giant, dynamic bar chart. Is there a freeware (or cheap) template, widget or piece of code that allows me to do this? [more inside]

Importing contents of one HTML file into another, from a CD?

Plain old HTML: is there any way to get the contents of HTML file A into HTML file B without using frames, iframes, PHP or other server side stuff (it's for on a cd), and just copy-pasting the contents of one into the other? So something like an import function (perhaps done with javascript)? I need a page with a TOC + content and want to make it pretty, so frames are a no. [more inside]

How to play audio clip on mouseover?

Web tricks. This rather clever use of the "marquee" html tag made me wonder how I could code a really stupid and irritating effect : mousing over a link triggers a tiny, obnoxious audio clip.

" isn't there some way I could make a tiny little (2-3 sec) audio clip play when somebody mouses over a link?....Farts, shrieks, high pitched cartoon voices wailing "It's hopeless. I'll just crawl up my ass and die!", and so on."

Can anyone recommend a good HTML code beautifier? I have Dreamweaver MX, but as near as I can tell, it won't do this. I'm specifically looking for something to do good logical indenting, take care of whitespace, etc.
