The way this would probably work best (hybrid app) is a OL/DHTML app
that embeds one or more OL/SWF apps. This should be possible in one
way or another with Legals.
Ideally, LZX would support this kind of app directly, so that one LZX
app could be "hybridized" (pieces of it compiled into SWF for
embedding into the piece compiled for DHTML), but that's not planned
for 4.0. You'll have to work with multiple LZX apps initially.
There are browser bugs that prevent free-form overlaying of HTML on
top of SWF. The only browser that handles it correctly, or near-
correctly, is Internet Explorer. Other browsers have problems with
interaction, rendering bleed-through, and more. Your best bet is to
embed SWF inside HTML, though that doesn't cover all cases...
