You can place a Flash movie within a table.

This is "preloading", not HTML. Just so you know what to hunt for (see below).

Hi LSY, and Welcome!

Here's a good standard procedure for starting to hunt up learning materials *for
lotsa different concerns*, not just HTML:

(1) Check the index of the Flash manual and any other Flash books you may have

E.g., Flash manual:

HTML
publish settings 230
tag reference 251
templates 247

Doing this first is good because it often gets you thinking and asking
questions, due to info that's commonly too brief. :-)

(2) Go to http://www.macromedia.com/support/search/ (their technotes-search
page), enter your keyword(s), select Flash product support center, don't check
General, and search. I found 11 technotes regarding HTML. Depending upon what
you're searching for, you may also want search with their "generic" (site-wide)
search engine http://www.macromedia.com/help/ for "Flash and HTML" -- 100's of
hits.

(3) http://www.flashcentral.com/tech/index.htm is a great list of resources for
various topics ... you'll find HTML there.

(4) http://www.FlashCentral.com/Tech/Resources/Flash.htm is a great list of
sites offering tutorials, etc.

Happy exploring!
