Of course not. But say you save the value 1 on a little endian machine as 16 
bit integer: that'll be (0x0100). Then load it on a big endian machine,
and you'll get the value 256. Not so good ... ;)

Files like .jpg or .ogg have a fixed file format, so it does not matter
where you create them. But the programs that manipulate them have to take
care of reading or writing them in the right way.
