Our preloader will be a self contained movie with a bit of code on it. This will help us to encapsulate our functionality into a library resource that we can share between Flash MX files so that we don't have to download our loader over and over again.
Now would probably be a good time to have a quick look at "shared libraries" entry in the index of your online Flash MX documentation. The page title is "Using shared library assets". You will also find it in the "Using Flash > Using Symbols, Instances, and Library Assets > Using shared library assets" in the contents of your online help.
You can also create shared library assets for fonts. See "Using Flash > Working with Text > Creating font symbols" in your help file for more info.
