    Do SWFs cache? Why do they load each time?

      I'm loading a number of external swf files into the same movie clip instance on a main movie. Menu buttons on the main movie allow users to load the swf of their choice into the movie clip instance on the stage.

      I have noticed in simulated download mode that each SWF file downloads each time a user clicks a button to request it even though it has already been downloaded. Will this work the same way live or is this just a function of the simulated download mechanism?

      If it is not the simulated download mechanism doing this is there a way to get SWF files to cache just like other web files so they do not have to download them each time they select them.
