I'd love to, but IMO it should be done completely in Flash, with some Java
applets, IE-specific tags, and faulty JavaScript thrown in for good
measure.  Unfortunately, I don't know nearly enough Flash to do this with
little effort (and I'm used to writing compatible HTML, too).  If someone
else volunteers to do this, I'll help out with the Java applets and faulty
JavaScript.  Until then I'll be content to maintain the OLOCA...

Any takers for the FOQ?
