I want to put a small sound file on my Web site.  I want people to be able to click on a graphic or a button and then have the sound play in that instant.  Is there a way to set this up without any messy plugins?

Sure!

Just use this code:
<EMBED SRC="test.wav" volume="100" hidden="true" autostart="false">

Then, for a link you would use:
<A HREF="#" onclick="document.embeds[0].play(false);">Play</a>

For a button you would use:
<INPUT TYPE=button VALUE="PLAY" onClick="document.embeds[0].play(false);">

For the document.embeds[X].play(false), X stands for the array number of your embedded source, 0 being the first element in the array.  The embedded sources array elements are number by the order in which they load.  So, if you have more than one sound, the command to play the second would be document.embeds[1].play(false).

one thing is that the <EMBED> tag still requires a plugin (Well on some browsers it does)
