   This may seem a bit off the wall, but what about mp3? It's cross 
platform, it's small, it's high quality... The only possible problem 
I can think of, and I don't know if this is true or not, but because 
it's compressed it may take longer to start playing, which would be 
problematic when you're dealing with really short sounds that are 
supposed to play when you click a button or something... Though I 
guess I don't know if the compression would make much difference in 
file size when dealing with such short clips anywayz...
