often through

Also note the possibility of providing access to the zoom feature of Flash
Player through HTML links in the parent HTML document. Have a look at
http://www.nils.org.au/ais/web/resources/Monash2005/js_zoom.html for a
basic example of controlling zoom and panning via the keyboard. Note that
the technique is dependent on Javascript.
