OK, I know flash is the option - the problem is that I don't have designer fluent at Flash right now. Anyway, thanks for the tip. OTOH I think that flash is overhyped, well - that's just me :-) If I would use something for really cool presentations - I would go with Scala. One has to see it first to believe it - viva old good Amiga days :-) You can learn Scala in few hours to do basic stuff, all scripts are just that - editable scripts, etc. I would like to get Rebol working with 3rd party tools, but it is not capable of that and noone can tell (except RT probably), if we can get other app window (output) working in some View face. I will answer to IE in another mail :-)
