I don't know if you've realized this, but life is all about practicality. the content instructed within are not even close to being practical, neither for publishing within your website nor for presenting to web design clients.
some are ok.. i repeat JUST OK... but most of these fancy 3 dimensional gridline work aren't even that pleasing to the eye, even if you weren't considering practicality.
if you really really want to incorporate layered/masked/transparent grids within your flash content, just import it from photoshop or fireworks...
i know this is not directly relevant to this book, but it appears that ever since friends of ed publishing company established themselves as a respectable publishing co., it has been beginning to get greedy and publish garbage... similar to the trend new riders has been taking. new rider books initially were superb.. now they're getting greedy about their company cash inflow and publishing obvious or unimportant material that a person with average intelligence can figure out on their own. ex: Now there are flash 99% good? and other flash usablity books. give me a break... web usability in general is important; but flash usability? haha....
