I'm fairly new to the web development world. As such, I have yet to come across a project where I needed flash support which I probably why I've never heard of this before. I looked over some of the sample text on the Manning site. This looks very much like a mark up styled language. Like an XML/HTML derivative, atleast for its syntax style. Is this a compiled language? Interpreted?
