Dealing with Complex Client Interfaces: Html or RIA?



I'm working with a client who has a new project that needs to be built that is based on a complex window based layout and the app needs to be built for the Web. We've had a bunch of back and forth over which tools to use: AJAX/HTML or a RIA solution like Silverlight or Flash. In this post I have a few thoughts and comments on this discussion and talk about what we ended up with.
