    I know it's possible to have your code determine the user's browser and version, and to redirect/reconstruct pages accordingly, but does anyone know if it's possible to detect if a visitor's browser supports Flash, and then to direct them to an appropriate page?
    Thanx for all help.

    Both browsers expose a Plugins collection to the document. You can use that to determine if flash is installed. Look on different cut and paste sites for a tutorial on Plug-in detection. If you are using ASP you can also use BrowserHawk from cyScape (I think they have a JSP version also). This component will tell you everything you need to know about your visitors except whether or not they brushed their teeth after lunch.
