I am trying to understand how SIFR works.

Do we need to create flash file before hand for every text we want to display?
For example I want to display following two:


So I need to make their SWF files before hand or will SIRF do at runtime automatically?
If I have to create flash files then what's the advantage of it over using traditional images? I mean can't I just create an image of these texts instead of using this complex SIFR?
