    Red face Decision making

    I want to design a system such that:

    I will get a set of words and its position on the client side screen from server and then I want to show each words on the client side screen on the specied positions, So basically I need this few jobs to be done:

    From server side: I will get few words in the range of 30-50
    On the client side: I want to draw each word at a speciefied position and rotation which may be followed by drawing of lines on the same screen with given two points.

    My QnS:

    1. Do I need to go for Web Application or browser based application?
    (I'll prefer browser based, if you suggest the same kindly give the techniques used for wikimapia). Give the parameters influencing such decisions.
    2. What technologies I must use in server side and client side for the best in its performance and appearence too. is it better to use PHP in the server side? as I am familiar with PHP.

    Why flash? Why not other any technologies just for my knowledge.
    Actually I wanted to go for JavaScript or AJAX, I was wondering that flash reforms very slow in comparison to them, if I am not wrong. My preference is performance, but minimally I have to show 30-50 words on cliuent side at their respective position and rotations.
    I have not got yet what technology wikimapia or google map uses?

    I had downloaded Flex, what to use? flash or flex plz provide me links if possible.

    Becuase Flash or a similar technology (Flex as far as I know) is the only thing that will do that for you. Flash is the most widespread, I don't know how cross-browser Flex is.
    Great wit and madness are near allied, and fine a line their bounds divide.

    I don't know why you are suggesting me flash, but still I am not convinced, I dont want any animation but yes the user will interact with those words written on the client screen, why not javascript?

    and plz provide me the link of the working environment of flash

    JavaScript can not rotate text. SVG is an option, but it's not supported by IE.
    If you want all singing, all dancing, you need Flash.
