Ken,

But isn't a Flash swf file, technically, a type of Shockwave file, using Shockwave
technology? (Doesn't "swf" stand for "Shockwave for Flash" or "Shockwave Flash"?)
And, by common practice, we've just come to call Director output for the web
"Shockwave" and Flash output for the web "Flash," but both use their variant of
the Shockwave technology?

You can find Flash content at http://www.shockwave.com.
