        1. Planning Ahead
          1. Separate potentially troublesome elements
          2. Reuse as much as possible
          3. Be generous with comments
          4. Stick with consistent names
        2. Techniques for Better Testing
      2. Testing on the Stage
      3. Testing in Flash Player
      4. Testing Inside a Web Page
      5. Testing Download Time
        1. Simulating Downloads
          1. Pinpointing bottlenecks with a bandwidth profiler report
      6. The Art of Debugging
        1. Using the Syntax Checker
        2. Using the Compiler Errors Panel
        3. Using the Output Panel and trace( ) Statement
      7. Using the Debugger
        1. Setting and Using Breakpoints
    2. 19. Publishing and Exporting
      1. Optimizing Flash Documents
        1. Ten Optimization Strategies
          1. Choose tweens over frame-by-frame animations
          2. Choose the Pencil tool over the Brush tool
          3. Choose solid over dashed or dotted lines
          4. Simplify curves
          5. Use symbols
          6. Avoid bitmaps (or optimize them)
          7. Keep sound clips to a minimum; when you do use them, optimize them.
          8. Group elements
          9. Avoid the extraneous
          10. Tell Flash to keep your file size down
      2. Publishing Your Animations
        1. Publishing as a Compiled Flash (.swf) File
        2. Publishing as a Web Page
        3. Publishing a Frame as a Static Image File
          1. Publishing a static GIF
          2. Publishing a JPEG
          3. Publishing a PNG
        4. Publishing as an Animated GIF
        5. Publishing as a Standalone Projector
      3. Exporting Flash to Other Formats
