I am just curious. Can you explain why Mozquito.com chose to go the Flash MX 
route for DENG? Or, to put the question another way, what reasons influenced 
you not to choose SVG/ECMAScript for the project?

I can see potential reasons of market reach and timing but wondered if those 
were the primary or only reasons.
