Subject [FlexJS] Text For the Tour
Date Fri, 20 Jan 2017 00:49:12 GMT
I was starting to write up an entry for Tour de FlexJS (TdFJS).  I'm
hoping to put in TdFJS not just code and a running example, but also more
words sort of like Flex Examples and other tutorials.

Then I realized that we want to have both a SWF version and JS version of
TdFJS, but SWF isn't so good at Rich Text.  I think we'd want to use more
than just plain text in the write-ups.

On the JS side, we can just display HTML files.  We can do the same in SWF
if we limit ourselves to the HTML support in TextField.  Does that sound

But then, my writing has to be placed .html files.  That's easy enough for
me to do, but is that reasonable?  HTML is rather painful which is why
other markup languages are used on blogs and wikis.

I could put my writing on our wiki and TdFJS could load it via Iframes,
but that is even harder to do for SWF unless we use Judah's HTMLDocument
or create the equivalent.
