Added an “<span style="font-family: monospace;">Unmute for alert sound</span>” setting to play the alert sound even if WoW is muted.

SharedMedia-type addons. The alert border flash now only shows when you enable “<span style="font-family: monospace;">Screen Edge Flash</span>” in the Default UI's Display Interface Options panel.
