    .swf stands for...

    I need to get this sorted out. I use Flash for a living and I still dont know for sure if .swf sands for "smalll web file" or "Shockwave-Flash"(which any designer knows needs two different players).

    I Always knew it was "small web file" which was an exported file that Macromedia bought from Future Splash before Flash or Shockwave was even in existance. But when IE doesn't recognize an .swf file, it says "It doesnt know how to handle the "Shockwave-Flash" file"".

    So does that mean that Macromedia changed its original "small web file" meaning to "Shockwave Flash"?
