    Non-Flash certificate maker?

    I am interested in creating a simple web application to generate and print custom certificates, like the one here:

    http://www.senteacher.org/Worksheet/...ificates.xhtml

    However, the application on this page (as well as all the others I have found) is written in Flash. Does anyone know of a similar app implemented with Ajax or some other Web 2.0 technology?

    I don't understand sorry, you want to create a web application but you are looking for something ready-made?

    Well, first I want to know if it is even possible to create this kind of application using anything other than Flash. That is why I am asking for examples, if they exist. That being said, if there is ready-made code somewhere that I could adapt for my purpose (either free or for a reasonable price), I would be interested.

    An update on my research for anyone who is interested: I have decided that Flash is the most appropriate tool for the application I have in mind. There are a lot of good arguments in this thread (both for and against Flash) that helped my decision; thank you to all who participated:

    I also found a tutorial on building a printable certificate template in Flash that I will probably use as a starting point:

    Just to clarify, I have no intention of building/cloning yet another certificate site. CertificateCreator.com has had that market locked up for years. The application I have in mind fills a niche that I do not believe is being served yet.
