Unless you know what you are doing…. Don’t Build Your Site With Flash.
Well not entirely in Flash, and especially not if you know very little about the ever improving accessibility of Flash.
Flash is a propriety plug in created by Macromedia to infuse (albeit) fantastically rich media for your websites. The W3C advises you avoid the use of such proprietary technology to construct an entire site.
Instead, build your site with CSS and HTML ensuring everyone, including search engine robots, can sample your website content. Then, if required, you can embed media files such as Flash in the HTML of your website.
Flash, in the hands of an inexperienced designer, can cause all types of problems at the moment, especially with:
- Search Engines
- Users not having the Plug In
- Large Download Times
