    I got it!

    I fiddled around some, and checked out a few details. Turns out the page looked just right in NS4 and 6, but not IE. Then I looked at the other cells, where the format was just right. And there it...

    It's hard for me to tell, since I'm on a pretty blastin' network, but I think that site pre-loads 100%. That always eliminates delay, if you can stand to wait for the pre-load. I looked over your...

    I'd agree that "centralizing" your navigation is a good idea. I mean, why re-load the buttons each time you shoft between movies? I think when GraphicsGuru says to make the main file bigger, he...

    As another alternative, if you can post a link to the images (in .png) I can download them, put them in a .fla's library, and send it back to you. Then you can import the images from the library,...

    You don't need to use loadmovie, unless that's what you really want to use. You can just do a getURL() and essentially you're linking like (with?) a hyperlink.

    That depends... are you making careful use of symbols? Symbols rock because once you make one, the rest are essentially free. I think that's the most generic tip and one of the more important for...

    If you can export them into .png files you're in good shape. Flash handles .png files well (It's the default format of Fireworks), and I'm pretty sure it respects the alpha channels. You'll...

    That's essentially the same as

    _root._width
    _root._height

    That last part is what interests me. I could find those values and set them to an upper bound, but when? I don't want to...

  17. Can PHP detect the width of the browser?

    I'm scripting up a page and I'd like to be able to detect the width of the browser for various purposes. I've seen this done in javascript, but I would prefer to do this in PHP. Is this possible?
