Someone wasn't doing their homework and just got lazy programmers (Yes it is easier to program in silverlight, but so it was with Activex and we know what happened).

CBC uses Flash.

HTML5 <video> tags would be preferable, but it's going to be a while
before it's widely supported across browsers.  Maybe the iPad will
hurry the process along.

I actually like that Moonlight is out there.  If people can actually
get it to work, I'd be happy to see Silverlight adopted in place of
Flash.  But it might be moot if HTML5 goes anywhere (codec issues
aside).
