can we have the same name be given to a symbol and to its instance in AS3

Absolutely, as long as the two don't have the same scope and create problems, but it's really confusing to debug. :-) I usually let myself get away with it on simple stuff.

Earlier when i used to work with cs3 it dint show any errors (may be i was working in as 2)
but recently we got cs4 and error:1046 pops out when the instance and symbol name are the same

Well, I've never had a problem with it, but a search for 1046 error Flash turns up some results that indicate I may be wrong. I have some simple Flash files doing this and no problems, but they are AS2 and older.

if adobe concentrates on providing a more clearer picture like MS (in development) , it will be beneficial for everyone
