Default frame rate confusion

In the flash help section for MX it says something along the lines of 12fps being optimum rate for playback on web. The movie I am making however looks jerky at 12fps because of the type of animation. At 16 fps it looks much better and at 20 or so it looks smooth as.

I have read on other posts of people using 15fps and even 24fps for "professional" presentations.

Is 16 fps fine to use for a web site?

Will most (i.e. 99.5% of computers be able to handle that rate?)

I think it really depends on what your animation is doing at the time. If you are moving a couple of vector lines around the place, then 99% of people will have no trouble. If you are tweening full screen bitmaps and have alpha fades happening all at once you will find that the pecentage of machines that can push that at higher frame rates falls considerably.
