TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
One of the approaches I've seen is to give the user the choice of seeing the
Flash and non-Flash version of a page. Much like a lot of pages do a image
and non-image version of a page.

Jeroen said : Unfortunately, Flash is used by too many web designers who
think it's cool to make every word on your website appear letter-by-letter,
and to make circles and GIF images dance around your screen. And they do so
assuming that everybody has a high speed broadband internet connection...
You are so right! There are many pages that include IMPORTANT information
in Flash. I don't have any problems with downloading pages done entirely in
Flash, but my father's computer takes forever. Usually, this just causes the
user to give up and leave the page before it downloads. This is bad for
commercial sites who need web surfer/searchers to "view" their information.
