> The UK version of the same webshop. It says:
> Full Studio MX 2004 = 699 Pounds
> Upgrade from Studio MX 2004 = 309 Pounds
> Full Studio MX 2004 with Flash Professional = 799 Pounds
> Upgrade to Studio MX 2004 with Flash Professional = 239 Pounds
> The Full version without Flash Pro is indeed cheaper than with Flash

> to MX 2004 with Flash Pro is actually cheaper than upgrading without
> Flash Pro.

> Alas, the same previous oddities still occur here too:
> Full Studio MX 2004 = 1158 Euro's
> Upgrade from Studio MX 2004 = 555 Euro's
> Full Studio MX 2004 with Flash Professional = 1309 Euro's
> Upgrade to Studio MX 2004 with Flash Professional = 404 Euro's
> Same here; the Flash Pro upgrade version is cheaper.
