OK, the m3u thing first.  No, you need to link to this off ;your website
(e.g. put it in with your HTML files and do something like:

<A HREF="stream1.m3u">Click here to listen</A>

Of course, this assumes you have a website, but if you don't, there's not a
lot of point in wanting to open it in a browser I'm guessing.

As for the multiple streams thing, I can't see anything about it for
certain, but my guess is that you'd have multiple <stream></stream>
sections, each one sending to a different mountpoint with the relevant
encoding.  So you'd have your 128kbps material and just send it as is (i.e.
reencode set to 0), then another <stream> section with the bitrate as 64
and reencode set to 1 and another for the 24kbps mode.  Note that I'm only
guessing that this is how it would be done, people who use ices 0.2.3 will
know for certain.
