Yes take advantage of PNG for importing into Flash. Since it matters not
for which browser or browser version a person is using as long as they
have the Flash plugin.

I also found that Fireworks is nice and easy for doing up PNGs. I save my
graphics as BMPs and then open them up with FW3 and export them
as PNGs.

Note: When saving a PNG with an indexed transparent color. The file
MUST be brought back into FW3 and resaved before importing into Flash.
I don't know why but if you don't do this Flash will index the wrong color
as being transparent.

An easy way of testing this is to take a black and white picture and choose
either color as being transparent then import that pic into Flash... you will
notice the opposite color being transparent.
