Presuming Mozilla can play sound formats other than wav, Mozilla shouldn't refer specifically to a single proprietary sound format in it's new-mail-sound prefs. Instead of "Custom wav file", we should use "Custom sound file".
seth, would this be in your area? reassign if needed.

I believe we can only handle .wav files at the moment? Hence why that wording was picked.

The Mac nsISound implementation can actually play any sound format that Quicktime handles (e.g. aiff, wav, mp3 etc). Yes, you could set this sound file to be a 5-minute MP3 ;)
Looks like my original patch correctly; it replaces the whole DTD file. I'll try to make another. Should this be a Mac-only change, or can Mozilla handle multiple non-WAV formats on all platforms?
Whiteboard: File to patch is chrome/en-US/locale/en-US/messenger/pref-mailnews.dtd
