ERRATA

On page 281, the third sentence of the last tip on the page is inaccurate. It should say "The doubled keyframe will cause a slight delay in the motion, which you may not want."

On page 391, at the bottom of the page, it should say this:
CAUTION: Although you can add sounds to a button symbol as outlined in this task, in your published movie the button will behave in an unexpected manner. Due to a bug, currently when users click an instance of a button symbol in a published movie, the button repeats the sound of the Over frame and plays the Down frame sound as well. To avoid confusion, use sound only in the Down frame of the button. To give users good button feedback, be sure to make the Over frame visually distinctive from the Up frame.
