A lurker emerges from the shadows....
>From the original description, it sounds like the site is employing browser
the rendering of HTML, these are relatively minor in comparison to the
the site, the only real solution is to load the site in Windows/IE whether
it be on a stand-alone box or within a virtual machine. Every browser
another system because to duplicate IE would require duplicating what it
claims to support as well as all the "features" (i.e. bugs), and deviations
specific ActiveX controls, but the solution is still the same -- you need to
have Windows itself.
On the subject of Flash, it is one of the best tools in the RIA product
space. A key advantages of Flash is that it looks the same in all browsers
and the Flash plug-in is present . Yes, Flash can be misused, but it is
augmented with Flash where necessary can make a very good, intuitive site.
