I've been offered some work to build a site that will have the following:

- Menu made up of overlapping squares, which when clicked fade and fly through to the front, with the others moving behind
- Main content held as hidden divs being shown / hidden using javascript

Two unknowns I'd like to get any advice on are:

- Whats the best approach to making the menu? If I was to animate each possible menu click manually it would be 20 possible transitions, so I am hoping there might be a more sensible approach than to make each possible click manually
- Can the flash communicate with the javascript to show / hide the html content?

Any advice appreciated!

1. Place button objects over a movie clip of the animation.
2. Yes, flash and javascript can communicate. A Google search will yield some examples.
