I just installed the "HEAD" version of Gnash today, and I must say, it's
working much, much better than the official release version (0.8.3).
Sites that malfunctioned before are now displaying properly at last!

See http://www.gnu.org/software/gnash/#downloading for instructions on
how to get the source code.  You'll also need to install devel/bazaar-ng
in order to fetch it.

      (1) God exists.
      (2) Can I prove it?  Probably.
      (3) Therefore, God exists.
