Uh huh, my feelings are very similar to yours.  I do think the situation 
might have been currently different if html were the crisp, adept, non-
buggy interface it's supposed to be, however.  But reality is different, 
and as I implied before, pagemakers will use whatever best satisfies 
_their_ needs to create the kind of page they want to communicate with 
_their_ audience.  It's a bit like the difference between .wma and .mp3 
files.  To digital music fans, the former is a joke, -created by MS to 
control the interests of themselves and their proprietary clients.  Well, I 
don't care about those interests; I care about my own.  Mp3s are much less 
invasive or restrictive.  So saying, the main trouble I have with Flash is 
that it's still proprietary.  If Abode were smart, they'd open-source it.  
-Now, before something free [and more "accessible" :)] takes it place.
