Actually, I think there are very good accessibility reasons for having the
kind of content that flash produces, so long as it is accessible. This
otivated a large amount of work on SVG accessibility, where a lot of these
things are easier to do - such as http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG-access and other
stuff.

There are many many trivial uses of flash (where something simpler would have
done as well in a more easily accessible fashion), but there are also very
valuable, useful examples of flash content, used for example in education,
where it adds accessibility to the material presented.

Cheers

Charles

  accessibility <grin />.
