Many thanks to everyone who helped me with this book: Tom Pizer, Jody Keating, Tracy Kelly, Branden Hall, Miles Windsor, Keenan Keeling, and Doug Clarke from Fig Leaf Software who all had a part in the original Flash 5 curriculum that this book was based on; Jon Spindler for providing a fresh perspective and making sure everything works; David Willis for being there from the beginning; Darwin, Jinx, Luna, and Gator for staying quiet long enough to let me work; the Flash community for all the inspiration and support; Brett Rampata, Todd Marks, Asako Nagata, Walt Rampata, Bill Murray, and Eddy from digitalorganism; Allise Berger and Tiffany Beltis from Macromedia; and most importantly, Wendy Sharp from Peachpit for her superhuman editing efforts.

This book is dedicated to Mom and Jon.
