Default .SWF / HTML Question


I'm finishing up my website and am in the process of loading script to detect the current flash player in the user's browswer. My question is this:

I don't have an HTML background and have learned web design almost exclusively using flash. When I redirect my visitors to the nonFlash.html if they don't have flash 5 or 6, can I rely on the HTML that was published in flash to redirect them to? In other words, I haven't designed any additional HTML pages outside of flash. Would I need to change my links to .html sources as opposed to .swf (i.e. music loads, movies, etc.)? I'm assuming that if a user does not have flash, they will only be able to access HTML pages.

I hope I'm making sense. Does anyone have a clue?

You don't make much sense for me. Though I would like to tell you the best variant as I see it. For example you will have a simple HTML index page, the first one your visitors will see. There will be 2 links there inviting to open either a HTML page or a Flash variant. (Those links should be in HTML).
There are some ways to learn whether a user has Flash-player installed but it's way too difficult and not always reliable.
