	I've nevr understood the need for something as absurd as 
	flash and shockwave;  a graphic/animated app that was developed
	for proprietary computers.  But I have wanted to know if the
	same thing could be done with Java.  Isn't most of  the sweat 
	in creating the animation?  The big question is, how much
	effort would it take to creat a javascript out of 
	whatever-flash-requires?
