Did I mention it runs horribly?

Here's what they're doing...

You place this crap at the bottom of you "FTML": <iframe src="
http://reshapemedia.com/ftml/engine/" width="100%" height="100%"></iframe>

The iframe proceeds to read the page its loaded in, parses the "FTML" and
feeds it to a SWF file that renders it as Flash.

Horrible, and again, not a cross-compiler from AS3 -> HTML/JS
