kherrerab - no better place than here to air your thoughts!!. i was perhaps thinking beyond the addition of flash and more thinking of the actual semantics of designers looking 'blandly' at the css definitions and giving 'alternative' ergonomic views based on that.
for me, at the end of the day, it has to be simple and ergonomic. that is why i tend to have a BIG %age of my mind geared twds the display objects when designing the BLL. this is why i think we could have some great 'generic' alternates from some talented css designers on tbh (a bit like cssgarden i suppose, if an ageed 'standard' was adopted) which would kick off the framework big-time.
anyway - thoughts to play with.
