DHTML vs. Flash/Actionscript

I've been using Flash/Actionscript for rapid prototyping
of various new features/functionality in our products.
It has been successful and I'm happy with the flexibility
and power that Flash/Actionscript offers.

I just saw a demonstration of a pretty slick prototype in
DHTML, including numerous interface widgets and interactivity.

Are there any strong opinions as to the superiority of one
over the other? Is it just a matter of one tool versus another
and personal choice?

Just curious...

Subject: numbering, design doc naming

Jack,
Yes, I work with requirements etc... That utilize this type of numbering
regularly.

They are usually requirements documentation, not always called Use Cases.
This specific term is used to describe an artifact in RUP (rational unified
process). If you have a client currently utilizing this development process
for applications you will quickly find that they do not account for User
Experience or Interface.

numbering, design doc naming

A two part question:
Does anyone else work with design documents that include steps with numbering such as "8-9a.3-9a.1"?
Do you call the documents "use cases?"
Thanks,
