sIFR [Mike Davidson]

sIFR is a method to insert rich typography into web pages without sacrificing accessibility, search engine friendliness, or markup semantics. The method, dubbed sIFR (or Scalable Inman Flash Replacement), was developed in 2003 by Shaun Inman and later refined by Mike Davidson and Mark Wubben. It requires javascript, Flash, and some tags in the html code to designate text to be put in a font of one's choice. The on-the-fly replacement or overlay of text by a rectangle of Flash text is automatic, once sIFR is installed. The developer only needs to edit sifr.fla and export the font in .swf. Blog.
