Well, one of the things that made Flash popular was that it didn't play with
HTML/JS so you could guarantee your rendering in different browsers.

But yeah, that's why I did that prototype years ago.  I thought we should
render HTML in Flash so you didn't have this integration issue.  Here's the
blog post: http://blogs.adobe.com/aharui/2008/01/html_and_flex_1.html

However, many folks felt that this was the equivalent to writing webkit, or
at least, the design-view in DreamWeaver and we didn't have resources to do
it.  That could be true, but I still get the feeling it is easier than that
because I would make some assumptions like only supporting XHTML so I don't
have to have all of that smart parsing logic that handles bad XHTML.

Early versions would be display-only and not run script.  To run script you
would need a JS interpreter.
