If this is "How can one SWF in an HTML page talk to another SWF in the
page?" then this is available if the browser permits it, but not all
browsers do.

Basically, Java-enabled Netscape 3.x and 4.x on PowerMac and Win32 offer
LiveConnect, and ActiveX-enabled IE3+/Win offers ActiveX Scripting. Both of
these are accessed from Flash's FSCommands for outgoing messages, and the
JavaScript API for incoming messages.

It's easier if you put all the interactivity in the SWF itself... this lets
you avoid the browser differences.
