Then perhaps Macromedia should have consulted with you (or any of the many other qualified people in Evolt) on this site.  Considering MM is a member of the W3C, you'd think they'd have run the site through the W3C's validator:


While it's allegedly possible to develop a Flash site that is fully-compliant with XHTML (well, you're saying you can do it with XML, so I'm assuming it would apply to XHTML as well), the creators of the most common Flash development environment (and creators of the SWF standard) didn't bother.
