As I'd mentioned before, you're certainly welcome to your opinions on
Flash and your points are noted, despite veering well off the original
topic (DW/HTML5). And no worries, nary a feather ruffled here. Good
day to you.
Kudos on adding HTML 5 support. Smart move... and good timing. I'd have liked to have seen workarounds for IE8 and under since the script would be so tiny, but that can be added and does not change how much we really like this addition. Looking forward to seeing the CSS3 animation interface - that might be fun.
Just a plug for SVG.
I've been a fan of it for years. My main interest right now is I would like us to be able to do scientific illustrations that can drill down into extremely closeup views. A bit of a specialty item to be sure.
I believe you can already do that with Flash, in the manner of Google Maps, though I forget what exactly the process is called. No doubt someone better informed than I can point you in the right direction.
I know this is replying to an 'old' thread but I remembered your question about using svg to drill down to a more detailed view and though you may be interested in this svg demo - http://ie.microsoft.com/testdrive/Graphics/_RespiratorySystem/Default. xhtml.
You may require the IE9 preview to view the demo, which can be obtained from the download link here - http://ie.microsoft.com/testdrive/info/ReleaseNotes/Default.html.
