100% Flash WordPress Theme

If, like me, you love WordPress but are frustrated with being limited to OS default fonts and, furthermore, despise the way Windows hammers your carefully ‘set’ type into it’s pixel grid, then this 100% Flash WordPress Theme from Motion & Color could be of interest to you.

Using Wrapper they have managed to achieve the rendering of standards compliant XHTML from a standard WordPress CMS, in Flash. It’s like siFR gone mad..!

Now some of my developer buddies are a bit sniffy about Wrapper — a cross-browser compliant HTML/CSS rendering engine written in ActionScript that sits on top of your standards compliant HTML page — basically because of the way it uses proprietary methods (Flash/Javascript) to display content. When you couple this with the processor intensive nature of Flash and the memory suck associated with displaying flash in Firefox (something that deserves a post in its own right..!) then I suppose you could say they have a point. But for applications where you wish to ensure precise rendering of your content across browsers and platforms whilst having the full gamut of fonts at your disposal, without sacrificing standards compliancy and accessibility, then Wrapper could be the answer.

Anyhow, I am gonna download the theme and have a play – who’s for a bit of Wordy Wrappinghood…?! (with apologies to Tom Tom Club)
