Yes. Obviously it's not a legal issue, as it's been done. Likewise, it's not so difficult as to require help from Adobe, as it's been done without such help. As I understand it, it's mostly a case of time and effort - working through as many different Flash files as possible, working out what they're doing, and implementing the support for it. -- Benjamin A'Lee <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> http://subvert.org.uk/~bma/ "I believe in equality for everyone, except reporters and photographers." - Mahatma Gandhi
