I was just wondering why so many functions on other peoples web pages are called MM_preload() or MM_loadVars() or something similar.

Is this some variation of Hungarian Notation that I don't know, or is it something a lot simpler than that?

Because that's the way Macromedia does it, to prevent accidentally using a reserved word for a function name.
