[Claire Smith] "How does the alpha transparency work with a frame by frame symbol?"

If you export a PNG sequence from Flash [link], you should be able to use a transparent background.

[Claire Smith] "I wanted to avoid the fuzzy edges that may be associated with bitmaps...."

If you can work in Flash and/or export at the same resolution you'll be using in AE (probably 1920x1080 for HD), you won't have any problems with fuzzy bitmaps, because you won't be scaling the image up and forcing the computer to interpolate pixels.

[Claire Smith] "Excuse the ignorance! I'm not very familiar with AE. Thanks for the help!"

If you're new to After Effects, I'd recommend the following link, in which Adobe's Todd Kopriva pulls together some important introductory materials:

I especially recommend the Video Copilot "Basic Training" series that Todd links to.
