Differences Between ActionScript 1.0 and 2.0

If you're familiar with ActionScript 1.0, you'll find that ActionScript 2.0 is similar, yet it has several subtle but important differences. In this section, we examine some of them so that you can take your hard-earned knowledge of ActionScript 1 and put it to use with ActionScript 2.0.
