You will create a fully working website by the end of this book. The techniques you learn can be applied to any website or project you build in Flash. Many parts of this site can be recycled into your own projects.
You can see the finished website online at http://flash.TrainingFromTheSource.com/.
The website is a SWF file that is embedded in an HTML page. The HTML page has some modification, so it is centered on the page with a custom background pattern. Click the three buttons near the top to explore the various amounts of dynamic data loaded into many of the different components that ship with Flash 8 and Flash 8 Professional. Notice all the graphic, animation, presentation, video, dynamic, and sound elements within this single website.
Because these components use some of the features specific to Flash Player 8, anyone viewing the site needs that player version (or greater) to view the website. If you don't have Flash Player 8 or greater, download and install the latest player from www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer.
