How will Flash work if the container html file and an embed swf file are from different domains?

How will Flash work if the container html file and an embed swf file are from different domains?,flash,Flash,Let me give the context first. A user opens a local html file which has a reference to a network url of an swf file to embed. Then let me ask 2 questions. (1) If the embed swf requests a local image file , will Flash allow the request? (2) If the embed swf requests an image file on a non local url other than one of the swf file, will Flash check a crossdomain.xml file on the url? Thank you in advance.

Question 1: Yes, I tried this and it worked. I have a local HTML file which embeds a swf via the network. It loads the image from the network.

Question 2: Crossdomain xml would only work if you run the flash file on a domain. I think it might work if your flash file is accessible via a domain, like www.yourdomain.com/folder/flashfile.swf. Then you can give domain acces to www.yourdomain.com in the crossdomain.xml on the external server where you get the images from.
