1] So, according to this it is better to create many smaller files than one
large one. Is this still the case even when preloading?

2] Also, if a sybol is downloaded from one movie, and is used again in
another movie, does that mean the browser/flash knows it was already
downloaded or will it download that symbol again?

3] If it knows it is already downloaded, then what happens if two different
symbols have the same name?
