Flash/QuickTime interaction with Revolution

According to our Director guru, Director has some limitations regarding
Unicode and multilingual support. He can get it to work but only after
jumping through some serious hoops. Reliably displaying 22 different
languages (with styling) is the lynchpin of the entire project.

Theoretically, Director may be able to do 90% of what we want. If Rev can
deliver 95% that's better. Even using something like altBrowser may solve
some of the major problems.

Which is part of the reason I'm being such a pain on the list (sorry). Can
we do better than Director for something like this? Hopefully. I'm supposed
to find out.

I'm certain that there are good reasons why Director may not be the best for
this project but I'm a Flash guy so can't really say what they are.

I'll meet with the guru tomorrow and nail down exactly where Director is
falling short.

My point being that Director does all these things now, without 
compromise. I like Rev a lot, but using the right tool for a project 
design is more important to me than blind loyalty.
