    Oh dear, I just came across a website with a set of simple rollover buttons,
    but instead of using javascript each button is an inividual flash animation
    :S cringe.

    That was my reaction too. What's so different between using individual
    images and individual flash animations (barring details like alt= versus
    <object> fallback)? In fact, I'm happier with a well-executed flash
    rollover that falls back to images that fall back to text than I am with a
    javascript menu.

    The fact that non-Flash users can't navigate at all?

    They can if decent fallback is provided, as was mentioned above.

    <object attribute="appropriate value" etc>
    <param this="that">
    <a href="wheretheflashlinksto.html">
    <img src="button" alt="something sensible">
    </a>
    </object>

    You don't see many examples of it, I'll admit.
