RE: scriptless player detection.

Now that we have the ActionScript $version variable, this can be used for
player version detection.

Here's a sample script. You can create it in Flash 4, *or* in Flash 5. Just
be sure to export the SWF as version 4.

Flash 4 style:

Set Variable: "playerVersion" = eval("$version")
Set Variable: "playerVersion" = substring(playerVersion, 5, 1)
If (playerVersion = "5")
Comment: load Flash 5 content
Comment: load Flash 4 content
End If

Flash 5 style:

playerVersion = eval("$version");
playerVersion = substring(playerVersion, 5, 1);
if (playerVersion == "5") {
// load Flash 5 content
} else {
// load Flash 4 content
