If you code for the WWW, then it's probably not good idea. Personally I
avoid flashed sites, because they are no better than Java applets or
downloadable EXEs or ActiveX-things. I believe Web to be about hypertext
and hate to see additions like Flash used for _content-delivery_.
(Interactive games and splash-screens are OK).

But if you build some internal thing, it is probably good idea,
depending on how many clients have Flash installed.
