Ok...I need to make a character sheet system for users of my website.
The character sheet needs to be:
Graphical
Graphically Editable (as in, the user can adjust where the graphics sit)
Content Editable (as in, the user can alter all the text on the sheet)
Link into a PHP database and be drawn and delivered to by the system

The question is this:
Out of Flash and Java, which (in any of your opinions) would be a better choice to make this with?

I vote for Flash. When I launch a page with a Java applete, everything slow's down to a crawl until the entire thing is loaded and ready to go.

That's kind of what I was thinking...I'm not a big fan of Java realy...for a completely different reason though. I hate the code it's written in. Oi!

Well, hmm....I guess I need to get that going then...
Thanks.

ditto -- flash is a bit more universal nowadays anyway it seems. I know
there's a clan against flash, but it's a whole lot nicer to your pc than java is. :)
