1 Our presumption is that using the browser will reduce overall build time.

2 This is not actually an intranet site, it is an internet site. It 
merely has a limited set of users. They could be required to install a 
client but I prefer to limit the technical requirements placed upon them 
as they are generally non-technical personell.

3 The interface in question is for internal use, but there is also an 
integrated interface for public use. That public interface will not use 
Flex, it will use HTML/CSS, but the two interfaces are anyhow closely 
related, sharing data and other resources.
