Yes it's true! I attended the MX Studio 2004 world-wide launch yesterday, and Flash MX 2004 now supports CSS fo text formatting.

This means that you can make a simple edit to one CSS file to change the text formatting for your entire site's HTML and Flash.

I don't know. Someone said in another thread that all the new MX 2004 products should be available in mid-September, which isn't far off. You could register to be notified on their website so you'll know as soon as it's available.

Though CSS might help Flash from a design standpoint, it still wont do very much for search engine placement.

From what Ive heard, lots of new cool features are out. Support for PDF now, motion tweens that speed up, aliased text, spell-checker, slideshow ability (arange slides like in powerpoint), CMYK support!, and i thought i read something about having a blur effect.

i jsut dont like how theyre having Flash MX 2004, and 2004 Professional....
