35mm Equivalent: What does this mean?

Does anyone know anything about that '35mm equivalent' measurement for the lenses? Admittedly, I haven't shot on 35mm film before, but it would seem to me that focal length and format are entirely independent factors.

It seems that the factor is about .14x; I'm just trying to figure out what the rules for this equivalent are.

Thanks!

Fantastic. Thanks, Mizel (and friends). That's exactly what I was looking for. My problem was less technical and more intellectual, trying to bridge the gap between the film work I've done and the video work I'm currently doing.

www.howstuffworks.com can only take you so far!

Thanks again.
