Without having to use a whole lot of slow loading browser identification
code, the best method is to give your site visitors a choice of entering the
flash site, or a non-flash site.
Build your non flash site in straight up web standard stuff, IE: html,
gifs,jpgs and pngs. Be sparing in your use of code. If you want a good
isn't to taxing.
Once you have the sites built, put your link to them on your entrance page
(index, cover whatever)
People in general love having the choice.
For the most part, flash is pretty standard these days and the blockage
against it is usually ocx file blocking from firewalls.
You can build both sites at eth same time by starting with teh Flash site
first, then copy it, then strip out all the flash elements and replace them
with your standard images which include animated gifs for where you want
animations. Be aware that animated gifs are heavier than flash and slower to
load though, so be sparing.
hope this helps
