Wow, this has turned into a rather heated techno-discussion! You could go back
4 or 5 years and say "show me a site where graphics and colour are used to do
more than add fluff."

Sheesh! Anyway, for what it is worth, I think a well produced site is a well
produced site, regardless of the technology used. Classic thinking - start with
the problem, come up with a solution, then think of the most appropriate (in
all senses of the word, including availability to users) technology mix to
implement the solution.

In terms of Jim's example, I personally don't like all of the spinning words
etc, but there are parts of the Flash movie which make the information more
