  1. Simple animations are really hard, mostly because you need to use html along with JavaScript and vector images. Some people are now using GIF files but those can get really heavy, i am looking forward to seen what “spirit” can do. In the meantime i want to see what Choreographer can do. thank you once again for the great articles.
