The whole point of having a standards based World Wide Web is so that
everyone can share the _same_ information.

If everyone runs their own browser that does its own non-standard thing
then there's not much point to the WWW.

HTML is a fundamental core component of the standards.

SWF content is not recognized by as far as I can tell.  Those
who supply it, and those who use it, are off in their own little
non-standard world.
