For SEO purposes, I'd be more comfortable with a non-framed site. I have more experience working with them and I've heard they just rank better. So I would like to kill the frames. But this Flash header and nav bar are pretty cool, and I would like to keep them if possible, rather than converting to dead image files.
So I want every page to be a flat html file which references the same Flash file. Common sense says the user's browser will cache the Flash and I won't be forcing them to re-dload the flash every time they click a link.
But common sense isn't always right, so I would like to check: Does a series of html files all referencing the same Flash file suffer from multiple dloads of the the Flash?
Thanks for any help you can give.
On one of my clients website, we make use of Flash in three places:
There are approximately 30 html files which do that -- all based on the same template (logo, nav menu, and footer) but with different content in the center.
While testing it out, I've had zilch problems -- and this is using a set of browsers: IE, Opera, Netscape, Mozilla, FireFox, and Safari.
I think you should have no problems doing that -- although it may vary.
