According to Finale, all of their software (except Notepad) can save
audio files as MP3. That is a great format for the web, and most cd
burning software can convert them to audio CD files. The biggest
advantages of MIDI files are that they are incredibly small (because
they're not music, just code) and can be converted by a lot of
notation programs. But MP3 files should work just fine.
