ActionScript Code:
var ml = new Object(); ml.onMouseWheel = function(lines) {     SomeClip._y += lines; }; Mouse.addListener(ml);

The fact that they don't have a scroll bar and that they rely on the user guessing the right way to find otherwise hidden content seems a bit risky

Also, they may have had some interesting features and content but I'll never know because the text was so small. If only Flash were somehow capable of enlarging vector-based text.

Sorry if I seem to be nitpicking... maybe I'm still in "Site Check mode".

yeah....pretty simple, but I think pretty clear. I would have never though about doing something like that.

Yeah, last January I was asked to make a prototype that involved mouse wheel motion, and that was one of the things I discovered... No mac support for it. It was a cool idea, too.
