I am to design a new webpage for a company in HTML5 and they want effects I usually associate with Flash.
If you look at http://www.beautyoftheweb.com/#/experience/
I've looked at the HTML5 info on w3cschools, but the canvas element is discussed in a very basic manner - gives me no insight into how a page like the one I mentioned above would function.
I'm thinking of a mindmap styled intro page, where the users are presented with the company logo in the middle and various boxes surrounding it. Clicking on one of the boxes loads it to the center of the page.
How would this function with search engines? Links? I know that AJAX presents difficulties when linking to a page where you want to display spesific content that was loaded dynamically.
Futhermore, what would be a good way to show users with older browsers not supporting HTML5 the same info in a relatively similair fashion?
