which leads to the annoying workaround of loading an HTML document into a
hidden frame which has an ONLOAD handler that starts your script. Of course,
that's only if you're trying to talk from flash to javascript, not the other
way around. a warning about the hidden frame technique: it causes problems with
the back button. I finally found time to write a workaround a few weeks ago
and posted it here. if you're using hidden frames to run scripts it's probably
