Yes, you make many good points.  I think the conclusion is that Flash has 
to be improved, as does html/css, etc.  -And the browsers.  It's just 
that sometimes I get a little sick of all the things that _don't_ work 
under "normal" html auspices.  Yesterday I found a beauty of a bug in 
Firefox.  Reload a page of thumbs and the first one disappears...  Oh, 
I'm sure there are conditions.  I think the thumb has to be bigger than a 
certain size, and perhaps centering plays a part, but it's definitely a 
bug - for something as simple as that.  (Probably relates to the cache 
because it only happens online.)  Geesh, will they ever get it right?
