Nah, not in Flash 9 anyway. HTML rendering in Flash 9 is still very
basic... Apollo on the other hand (ahem, I mean, AIR) can do all of
this, but I seriously think AIR has no future before it's even started.
People Will Not Download Bloated Players Adobe! Wake Up! Well unless
someone creates a killer app with it anyway, I think AIR will go
nowhere. Tell me, how many people have Shockwave players on their
computers theses days? Almost noone? Everyone has Flash though... and
everyone who has Windows Vista also has WFP installed.
