Hi all,

Question for the web gurus out there. How accessible are websites done
partially or completely in Flash? I'm not interested in elaborate
animations as much as I'm interested in its font capabilities. One of
the projects I'm working on is a translation of a website into Inuktitut
- the language of the Inuit (formerly known as Eskimo - not considered
PC anymore).  I have been able to get the three G5s in my lab to read
the site in any browser but Explorer, but on any of the PCs I've tested
- regardless of whether they're browsing with Mozilla or Explorer, I
can't get it to display the font correctly. Same goes with Macs outside
of our network (I downloaded the font from the Gov. of Nunavut's site -
could the computers in my lab be accessing my font libraries?) Since I
know one of the benefits of using Flash is that the end users' computers
don't need to have the fonts you used in your layout, I'm wondering if
this is a good option to ensure the entire Inuit community can use the
site. Thoughts?

Many thanks,
