[Bug 14817] There is no required audio or video codec in the specification. However, I think that recommending the use of the AU file format to be supported by <audio> would be a good idea, since none of the vendors have patent issues with the format.

It seems I overlooked that. It is quite odd that Internet Explorer doesn't
support it, considering Windows has always used RIFF WAVE files for raw audio,
and Windows has built-in decoders for it.

In that case, I suggest the spec should say browser vendors should support RIFF
WAVE PCM as a base minimum.
