Hiya Judy,

"load movie" places movies on top of each other like layers. _0level would be the
bottom layer
_1level would be the next layer and so on. Animation fps and movie size is
controlled by the 0level movie.

Say you had a movie on the 0level that was 800x600 and another movie on 1level at
it will appear in the top left hand corner of the 800x600 0level movie.

IMO, its better in most cases to create all movies the same size if you plan on
using "load movie"
feature. If the whole site is done in Flash, forget frames and use a navigation
bar on the 0level movie
to control "load movies" on different levels.
