If I put this in the very first web page in a long series, will it stay in cache and will the browser use it instead of tryint to download another copy?

Should do.

If you have a frameset you can even put it in a hidden frame and play it directly later:
<embed name="myWav" src="some.wav" hidden=false autostart=false>

top.hiddenFrame.document.embeds['myWav'].play();

This question has been abandoned. I will make a recommendation to the moderators on its resolution in a week or two. I appreciate any comments that would help me to make a recommendation.
 
In the absence of responses, I may recommend DELETE unless it is clear to me that it has value as a PAQ. Silence = you don't care
