Simply put, yes. The player doesn't care one way or the other. Just be mindful of memory as the Flash Player gets quirky when multiple version of the player on the screen at once. You should be fine with 2 but just a word of caution.
SymTsb - thanks for the response!
I guess I am just not sure exactly "how" the Flash Player Plugin actually works inside a browser. I know the FlashPlayer9 will play EITHER an SWF saved using AS2.0 or AS3.0, but never considered how it handled "mixed" versions. So I guess what you are saying is that even without using "frames", if I were to link two separate SWFs within the same HTML page that one could use AS3 and the other AS2 and they would co-exist - is that right? If so, will the AS2 SWF slow down the play performance of the AS3 SWF or are they handled totally separate by the Player?
They'll be handled separately in the same memory space (if that makes sense). I'd test performance in a real life setting before putting anything up in a "live" sense but yes, you can run an AS2 and AS3 file from the same page.
Thanks again - that is good to know!
