I believe many times, it's the aspect ratio... My sons school's site last
year was Flash. I guess you'd call it "scalable Flash" because it was the
size of your browser window -- whatever that might be. It was really ugly if
you didn't have a 4x3 aspect ratio open (who does anymore?) the circular
objects looked really wonky. (I would have linked you so you could see, but
I just looked and they've changed it -- set width now. ;))
