One problem with flash on a page is that it renders the page slightly more inaccessible. Ideally
there would be a link on the front page which says skip flash which would get the user of adaptive
technology past the flash window and on to the rest of the rest of the site thus reducing the
accessibility issue to a minor annoyance rather than a major aggravation.

Uhh.... that is what you do with flash, incorparate it into html pages.

Like this:
<object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000"
b#version=5,0,0,0" width="32" height="32">
  <param name=movie value="path/to/file.swf">
  <param name=quality value=high>
  <embed src="path/to/file.swf" quality=high
Version=ShockwaveFlash" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="32"

Hi again :)

Can one incorporate a flash automation into an html page?  Can it be done?

My client is interested in a flash automation on their page.  I want to
assume that I can write the page with html and job out a specific "flash
job".  Possible?
