I found this

FLASH? yes, flash
Behind we can see:
File Format: Shockwave Flash

Apparently this is text inside FLASH file. I can't see this before

The problem starts when you outsource the Flash content into one XML file per language... which makes sense, but also prevents Google from associating the Flash with its content!

Flash is a fact standard, privative, but standard

Adobe has no real competitor in this way. SVG and Javascript has poor performance. But, at least, this OPEN languages press Adobe to OPEN their standard

I bet for these OPEN languages instead of using flash in my web designs. Javascripts frameworks like mootools, are evolving fastly
