has a pretty good write-up on different methods to play sounds.
I like 4. Controlling an Embedded Sound using JavaScript (New) the best.

Q: What's the best method to play a sound when the user presses a hyperlink?
I don't want it to follow the hyperlink, so I know the function should return false.

Best way: Use flash!

To answer:

<a href="#" onClick="EvalSound('sound1'); return false"><img src="play.gif" border="0"></a>

or text:

<a href="#" onClick="EvalSound('sound1'); return false">Play</a>

OK, thanks.
If Flash is the best way, how should I use it?
Convert the wav file to swf, or is it easier than that?

I guess you need to convert the hyperlink to flash, but that might give accessibility issues
