Flash / Apple / HTML5 problems
Not shure of a the correct forum for this. I have been producing flash content with pictures rolling over. I have heared that Aplle are not going to support this on iPhones and tablets. I have also herd that HTML5 is a solution. Some of the content on the web is unclear with statments like blockinhg older content on Safari. Can anyone shead some light on this. I have used CSS5.5 to produce this but it is up to the browser not the version of flash used to create it. It is because of what I have herd about HTML5 that I am placing this in this forum.
It sounds like you intended to say that you're using "Adobe Creative Suite 5.5", not "Cascading Style Sheets 5.5" (which does not exist).
iPhones, iPads and iPod Touch devices do not support Flash. There are some apps that provide a workaround, but when building a new web page, it is much, much better to not use Flash in the first place.
Why the future tense? This has been the reality for several years now.

Newer versions of Android no longer support Flash either.

What I want to do is display Flash content on all PC's and current browsers. If Applie (i) stuff does not support it then what is the solution.
I thought HTML5 as I heard about it. If there is a direct replacement to Flash what is it. Statments like "Avoide Flash" is a crap statment without a solution.
Can I detect if an (i)Phone has the app installed.
http://html5test.com/ can tell me lots of information but is this done through things like PHP -> $_SERVER[""];
or is thay just using a list of data they already have.
I can deal with this by serving up a page withou the flash content.

The abbreviation "CSS" is commonly used to refer to Cascading Style Sheets, that's where the confusion came from.
It was moved for two reasons:

'you can detect whether an iPhone is being used.'
What I want to do is have a banner at the top of each page with revolving pictures something like
http://www.lifechurchbradford.com/ but in the form of a banner at the top of a web page measuring about Width 1020 px, Height 100 px
I did this some time ago (http://www.des-otoole.co.uk/flashy.php) in flash CS5.5, so something similar as a banner. I would like to be able to change the pictures at a later date and if this could be done as a separate include file like a text document that would be great.
