    Should i make it in flash to make it smaller in size, or leave it in HTML?

    HTML. Making it Flash locks out search engines and users who don't have it or don't choose to use it (me).

    HTML!!! Agree with Filburt1, using flash alienates a chunk of your audience. There is a time and place for flash animations, this isn't one of them. Also agreed on the search engine issue, without search engine visibility, your site wont get seen anyway!
    The future will be kind to me, for I intend to write it.

    400KB!!! I'm guessing that is for the entire site?? If so, that isn't all that bad i suppose, but making it into a flash movie would block out search engines, as well as most probably increasing the size to double that. Also - there is no real need for flash, so I wouldn't advise you used it.
