Hi there,

a couple of years ago we developed some applications based on SVG.  
Then, it was getting quiet on our side, and on Adobe's side Flash  
replaced SVG.

Now, we're thinking again about some dynamic, interactive content  
development using graphics, tables and maps, and I wonder in which  
direction we should head. SVG & OpenSource, or Flash & Proprietary.  
We've always used opensource software. But I wonder if the level of  
interactivity between the different elements mentioned above can  
really be achieved efficiently with SVG.

Thanks for any suggestions and thoughts!
