Flash ExternalInterface Internet Explorer Gotcha

Just learned this one the hard way. Apparently in Internet Explorer, a Flash application cannot use the “ExternalInterface” to add a callback named ‘play’. This list of reserved words also includes ‘stop’, ‘tags’, ‘item’ and possibly others.

Makes sense, but it took me a while to figure this one out since it is does not seem to be documented anywhere.
