would'nt you use HTML forms for pages done in HTML and Flash Forms for pages done in Flash?

Yes but I can embed flash forms into a html document. Is there any advantage/disadvantage from using forms made from flash rather than using html??

Since you're designing an Intranet, I can't think of any really major advantage or disadvantage. On a public site, their's lots more to consider.
Would either one offer easier maintenance for you? Also, if someone else ever need to take over from you, I would imagine that HTML skills are easier to find than HTML plus Flash.

I am the only one that knows flash here...and once I leave in 4 months, there will be no one who knows more than html. Do you suggest making nice html forms usings some rounded corner images...I think it would faciltate maintenance.

I would go for the HTML version
1) easier for other peole to update
2) dont have to worry about someone not having the plugin

Well I know that Flash 5 integrates well with ASP, but it bothers me that I don't see any other corporate web sites using flash to create their forms!!

I'd suggest HTML over Flash. If you need to make a quick change to a form for whatever reason it might just be 10 minutes in a text editor with HTML.
With Flash you would need to create a whole new object.

I agree txtBakers, maintenance is a key issue here, especially when no one in the organization knows flash and I am gone in 3 months.
