    Hi folks, I am currently researching the various WYSIWYG HTML5 editors (yes, it's mainly CSS and JavaScript) and other means to create interactive rich media content that is accessible without flash on iPads and the like.

    Reworked the "app" with Hype

    Now I gave Tumultco's Hype a spin and boy, if you do have the graphics readily available simple output to HTML5 is much easier than tweaking your Keynote file. Keynote shapes are converted to transparent PNG when you drag and drop them into Hype, so I could set up the whole thing relatively quickly. Some interface issues are still plaguing the app, but I see it as a public beta (for 30$ in the App store) anyway. If the tool set evolves into flash territory I wonder what they'll eventually charge.

    Not rendering fast enough on an iPad1 to be usable but looks great in Safari on my iMac to me:
