    do i need to use flash or html?

    Hi guys,

    Can you please help me, I want to start off to make a website to design my own tv channels with menu list. I would like to make 6 rectangle boxes to allow me to use the keyboard arrows button to move up and down to mouseover on each box without using the mouse point, not sure if I would need textboxes. And I am not sure that if I would need to code html or flash development.

    The website I want to make like this:
    http://labs.worldtv.com/tv

    Can you please suggest me what development (html or flash) would be the best for me to make a website like the one I post the link on above?

    Any advice would be much appreciated.

    Thanks in advance

    That page is built using Mootools, a javascript framework, no flash.

    I might add, it's a masterpiece of non-intuitive navigation. I cannot control it with a mouse, which is what I expect to do. Worse, my mouse disappears when I mouseover the page (in FF at least) suggesting the page is broken.

    I can control with a keyboard, but the only thing that made me try it was your comment about using the keyboard....how is a casual visitor supposed to know that?

    To quote Steve Krug (see my sig) - don't make me think! (I know it's not your site, but bear in mind the usability!)
    Use the W3C HTML Validator and CSS Validator to check your code and Firebug to see what css is applied to an element
    Read Steve Krug's book Don't Make Me Think - essential reading on web usability
    I don't recommend much, but I do recommend Clook for UK web hosting
