the most universally compatible way to do fancy websites?

Wordpress uses PHP and MySQL, though.

You can build a fancy website easily with just HTML and CSS by using some sort of grid system (such as 960gs).

You also want to use a proper color scheme... there is http://colorschemedesigner.com/ and stuff like this.

I hate nothing more than flash on a website! I think we will see it becoming an obsolete technology within the next few years.

Writing a website in your medium of choice is one thing, but your audience should dictate what you actually produce from your tools. Imo flash is going to become less and less supported, and replaced entirely by HTML5.

I don't know if it will be a fast change (web technology moves very fast) or a slow one as flash is currently rooted widely within the web.

But one thing i'm 100% sure of is it will be replaced.
