That's simply not true. Mac/Win Players, in English, are the first deliverables. Other languages follow. Other operating systems follow. Other device types follow. Documentation of the file format follows. Usually the whole set of development is done within a half-year or so. It doesn't matter much, but attempts at revisionist history are a sore spot with me. jd -- John Dowdell . Adobe Developer Support .
