    Well, I'm personally a fan of the guideline `NEVER create an all-flash website'.... But that's just me ;-)

    to expand on that if you make an all flash site you are creating a slow loading unaccessable site. also some people prefer simpler content that is easy to navigate.

    Well, there are certain advantages to creating an all-flash website.

    Despite the slowness of a usual Flash website, the interface is what the customer sees, and using an all-flash website is considered "cool" in our society and is highly admired by teenagers or middle-aged people. It's always good to make a good first impression.

    That's only how I think, though,

    And you're entirely right, or at least you were about a year and a half ago. But tools to make things you used to see only in Flash happen with XHTML+CSS+JS have become significantly more common over the past several months, meaning that it's now easy to make something that used to only be feasible in Flash with plain old text and no plugins (Google Maps, for example, is one of those things that I, at least, thought was done in Flash for the first few minutes; now, I'm disappointed when I see something that does the same thing in Flash instead of good ol' XHTML).

    Remember, the typical end user isn't going to right-click on the content area to see if you're doing something in Flash or not, they'll just see the snazzy graphics. Lightbox is an excellent example of something very slick that isn't done in Flash.

    You make a good point also to expand on that a site written in plan old text is alot easier to read and render plus certen elements can be easily modified without all the hassel of third party software.
