Lesson 11. Publishing Flash Documents
Macromedia Flash 8 Basic can be used to produce many kinds of applications. The most popular use of Flash is for applications that will be deployed over the web, although it is by no means limited to that use. Flash is finding its way to handheld devices such as cell phones and PDAs, onto public kiosks, and broadcast, and pretty much anywhere an application can be found. For Flash 8 applications to be used on any kind of platform, though, they must first be published.
You've been working the authoring environment for Flash in the last 10 lessons. In this lesson, you will publish from the authoring file into a format that can be understood by Flash Player, which is the SWF format. You'll also publish HTML along with your SWF file as well, and add metadata to your SWF files so that search engines have an easier time finding them and listing you higher on search hits.
