Initial Flash: The First Steps (Part 2)

In-built Support for Sound

HTML can provide support for very basic sound effects, but browsers must also support these extensions to HTML. Flash, on the other hand, has support for sound and music built in. Nearly any trigger or event can have sound attached to it within a Flash file. This can give designers the opportunity to help create a mood or provide cues using sound on a Web site flawlessly for the first time.Mostly Platform IndependentBasic HTML is inherently platform independent. Its content can be rendered on all platforms for which a simple Web browser has been produced. Netscape and Microsoft have added various 'enhancements' to HTML which has caused it to become less platform independent in some cases. Flash, controlled nearly entirely by Macromedia, currently has no such issues. Shockwave content, and hence Flash, can be rendered on any platform with a viewer developed for it. Unfortunately only a small number of platforms (although they're the most popular ones) have viewers, but Macromedia has wisely produced a Java viewer for use on platforms without support.
