FHTML (Fluid Hyper Text Markup Language) or FluidHtml is an interpreted markup language[1] that renders in Adobe Flash.[2] Rich Internet applications are globally popular, but most are not easy to learn, and generate pages that are not amenable to search engine optimization;[3] FHTML was created to deal with these issues. FHTML can be used with server-side web technologies such as Java, .NET Framework and PHP, and includes a layout engine that is more flexible than CSS.[3] FHTML is compatible in all major web browsers,[3] and allows web developers to create rich web functionality using easy HTML-like code.[4] Development of the language is currently in private beta testing,[5] but is planned to be opened for beta testing sometime in 2010.[5]


FHTML has the ease of use and search engine optimization of HTML,[6] and does not need to be compiled like Flex, Silverlight, and Flash.[1] Websites and schools can use the technology for free without support. FHTML runs on 95% of current browsers with no additional plug-ins or download required.[4] It supports 3D computer animation natively, and reduces total cost of ownership for a business.[4] .NET, Python, Java, PHP, and Ruby developers can all write FHTML in their original language.[1]


As search engines like Google and Yahoo gradually become more proficient at indexing the content of Flash files, a critic wonders, "does FluidHTML really fix anything that isn’t already steadily improving?"[7]


Auction house Sotheby's uses FHTML for its online retail catalog.[8]
