I posted this as a message to Dan, but i figured it might get
answered sooner if i placed it on the forum.
How will FLEX 3.0 render HTML? Will it be through another
object provided on the controls menu? I looked at the plan for FLEX
3, but could only find a mention of HTML rendering through AIR. I'm
unsure as to how, if at all this will work in FLEX.
Flex 3 supports HTML rendering via the HTML control in AIR,
but we will need enhancements in the Flash Player to support more
HTML rendering in the future. We have said that we're working on
some new text support in the Player (
blog post) and one of its goals is to improve our rendering
capabilities, but this is a little ways off. I know that the
engineers have spent some time prototyping other HTML rendering
options, so you can actually do some decent work, but we don't have
anything built into the framework right now.
