Actually, that's what I meant, and has formed the core tenet of this
entitre thread. Maybe I shouldn't have used "Aarons irony" :-) Business
want pages that are as flashy as possible, but don't realise that they
force the users to constantly upgrade their software. It was sickening how
quickly the Web got degraded through money: it started with mosaic, and is
still going on with Flash etc. But people don't learn, do they?
