I've been curious about this as well. I've read on OSNews and techcrunch that Scribd has moved a couple hundred thousand documents to their HTML5 viewer. But does anyone actually
have a link to one? The Scribd site has no press release or FAQ on the subject (that I could find). I'd like to see how it looks.

Honestly, I don't care very much about what Microsoft or Apple may say. On the other hand, yesterday Scribd announced they were moving out of flash to HTML5. And do not forget that swftools' creator works for Scribd. So now just wondering what may happen with
swftools and whether is there any plans.

Jobs letter about flash - half of it is simply not true.
when html5 is as powerful as flash, it automatically will have the same disadvantages as flash has today.
so don't believe the nonsense some crazy people are spreading these days. it's just a hype started/supported by apple (= steve jobs).
flash is available for android and many other platforms.
do you want everyone to be able to look into the sourcecode of your projects??
i know that flash can be disassembled too but it's not as easy as firefox -> webdev-toolbar -> view generated source code.
have you tried converting a complex graphic to svg and view it in any browser? safari on ipad and firefox is slow in rendering those but as swf its fast.
the market is not moving towards html5. no current browser except safari is supporting html5.
now please tell me that it is all wrong,

I imagine that as ourselves, many people has taken advantage of this great swftools package to transform documents in several formats to SWF and display them in flash-based viewers.
It looks like though that market is moving towards HTML5 and many players are moving their flash based viewers from flash to this standard. So a few questions arise with regards to swftools and custom viewers. So, is there any plans to provide tools to move
from flash to html5? Some kind of swftohtml5. Any plans to an html5 basic viewer? Or alternatively, what would be the necessary steps to move our documents converted with swftools to html5. Perhaps transforming them to svg and using an SWF viewer?
Quite a few questions :)
