Flash and HTML5

I just read an insightful and interesting article about Flash and HTML5 on http://www.theesoterictechie.com written by Christopher Long of http://flashinyourface.com/. It’s a discussion I have heard a lot in the last 6-12 months and the essence of this article seems to be that there will be space for both technologies in the future of web development, the key is using the right tool for the right job.

Indented bullets in an htmlText field in Flash

Just a quick code snippet example that solves a problem that sometimes comes up when bulleted text is required in an htmlText field with an inline indent per bullet. The indent of the bullet and the bullet text can be controlled by changing the indent, blockindent and tabstop values. I have added returns to see the code more easily.

<textformat blockindent='20' indent='-20' tabstops='[20]'>
<p>•<tab>text content will indent per bullet. text content will indent per bullet. text content will indent per bullet. text content will indent per bullet. text content will indent per bullet. text content will indent per bullet.</p>
<p>•<tab>text content will indent per bullet. text content will indent per bullet. text content will indent per bullet. text content will indent per bullet. text content will indent per bullet. text content will indent per bullet.</p>
</textformat>
