            For	
  my	
  first	
  round	
  of	
  reading,	
  I	
  explored	
  whether	
  to	
  use	
  HTML	
  or	
  Flash	
  for	
  

my	
  website.	
  I	
  chose	
  this	
  question	
  because	
  I	
  am	
  familiar	
  with	
  HTML,	
  but	
  I	
  have	
  never	
  

used	
  Flash	
  and	
  I	
  have	
  seen	
  many	
  online	
  portfolios	
  that	
  use	
  Flash.	
  I	
  found	
  a	
  web	
  

article	
  that	
  helped	
  me	
  on	
  my	
  research	
  for	
  this	
  topic.	
  It	
  was	
  written	
  by	
  Mark	
  

Angeletti,	
  and	
  was	
  titled	
  “Flash	
  vs.	
  Css/HTML:	
  Which	
  Will	
  You	
  Choose?”	
  

            In	
  this	
  article	
  he	
  shows	
  me	
  the	
  strength	
  and	
  weaknesses	
  of	
  both	
  Flash	
  and	
  

HTML.	
  	
  Some	
  of	
  the	
  advantages	
  of	
  Flash	
  are	
  greater	
  interactivity,	
  more	
  freedom	
  for	
  

the	
  user,	
  and	
  greater	
  control	
  of	
  the	
  site.	
  Flash	
  lets	
  you	
  animate	
  with	
  mouse	
  overs,	
  

clicks,	
  and	
  different	
  loading	
  screens.	
  To	
  sum	
  that	
  all	
  up,	
  Flash	
  has	
  the	
  power	
  to	
  do	
  

anything,	
  things	
  HTML	
  cannot.	
  The	
  downfall	
  is	
  Flash	
  sites	
  need	
  plug-­‐ins.	
  They	
  

cannot	
  be	
  printed	
  or	
  searched,	
  and	
  they	
  are	
  not	
  viewable	
  on	
  Apple	
  tablets	
  and	
  smart	
  

phones.	
  This	
  is	
  a	
  huge	
  problem	
  when	
  trying	
  to	
  present	
  yourself	
  to	
  possible	
  clients.	
  

On	
  the	
  other	
  hand,	
  the	
  strengths	
  of	
  HTML	
  include	
  it	
  can	
  be	
  viewed	
  anywhere,	
  it	
  is	
  

easy	
  to	
  search,	
  easy	
  to	
  print,	
  and	
  easy	
  to	
  set	
  up	
  and	
  edit.	
  

            	
  

            	
  

            	
  
           My	
  research	
  on	
  my	
  essential	
  question	
  was	
  a	
  success.	
  It	
  answered	
  my	
  

question	
  and	
  made	
  me	
  more	
  knowledgeable	
  on	
  my	
  topic	
  in	
  general.	
  	
  After	
  reading	
  

my	
  article	
  numerous	
  times,	
  I	
  came	
  to	
  the	
  conclusion	
  that	
  HTML	
  was	
  the	
  safest	
  bet	
  

for	
  me	
  on	
  this	
  project	
  because	
  it	
  is	
  easy	
  to	
  use	
  and	
  work	
  with.	
  	
  This	
  answer	
  helps	
  the	
  

basic	
  foundation	
  to	
  my	
  whole	
  project.
