Do all of the components, like all the images, have to be downloaded BEFORE
a flash module will START? Or just the first ones?

Do big flash modules at the top of a page hold up the display of the rest of
a large page?

make a narrated movie.

But if these big flash modules are too long to download before they start,
OR delay the display of the rest of the page, then the idea is not a good

Does anyone have any thoughts on this?
