As I'm not sure what sprites are in this respect, does that mean the
thumb would get smaller in a smaller window, or that instead of 5
thumbs there'd be 4? I've seen enough Flash that scales with the
window, but it only means that on small windows the text gets *really*
Anyway, if the number of thumbs per row can be dependent on window
width, then I agree Flash wouldn't be that bad for it. Except still
for accessibility of course...
