Point taken. (I understood that actually, that's prolly why I should
apologize for the fun. ) But those are the requirements that gave
rise to the flash decision that you attempted to put down.

Yeah it plays perfectly in the non-free player. Which I actually got
and installed for this purpose.

I hate dilike flash on web pages. There are few legitimate uses for
it outside of advertising. Especially with the macromedia plug-in
there's no easy way to say 'ok never animate unless I tell you to.'
So it I see it as theft of CPU cyles.
