I have read a pretty good article today about exactly what I blogged about yesterday. It’s actually about Keith Peters asking Bill Gates what has in plan for the future of Silverlight. Gates’ answer is interesting, he mostly says that the end user doesn’t mind if it’s Flash or Silverlight; it’s all the same for him. Where the battle will be fought is on the developer side. He also says that the competition will be good for the industry just as I believe.
On an other subject, I found something very interesting today about htmlText. I already knew that you could insert images using the img html tag. What I found is that using ActionScript 3 you can also embed MovieClips also using the img tag. All you have to do is put the linkage id of the library of the particular MovieClip you want to embed in the src attribute of the img tag inside the htmlText. What is pretty cool is that you can use a normal text scrollbar to scroll images and MovieClips. I blog about htmlText more later because there are tons of things you can do with that.
