[Pro] Mootools/FW5 and Validation W3c

Hi

This is a reprise of a post made in August and I am wondering if tanyone has fresh views on these issues.

I am employing effects on load (items gradually appear on page load) + a fading slide show + a pop up light box. The pages being built can be seen at http://richard-lowther.com/MAISON_DE_LUCIE/chambres.html ( Click on room zoom to see the lightbox).

I have accomplished it with the mootools suite (effect on load & slimbox) and a flash slide show but I would prefer the slide show to be non-flash. Sequence timer+target hide/show layer could be a replacement for the flash but won’t work alongside mootools. They would work with Transition FX though. But this would leave me looking for a non-mootools lightbox.
I have a concern that mootools is currently being reconfigured and the present suite and other actions seem to be written for FW4 and are wrapped up in ifs and buts that make me wary of relying on them. AND the pages I have used them on don’t validate with W3C. (But only 3 errors flagged up)
Transition FX and hide/show layers seem so straightforward, and validate. And since this a hotel site we need good SEO and so validated pages are a requirement. Are there alternatives to Mootools. (Unless of course Weaver is about to resolve all these issues in the the upgrade?).
Maybe the answer would be a good lightbox (with multiple image option) - with a guide to placing it in FW and customising the background colour/transparency (a feature I like about mootools slimbox).
I guess I am looking for reassurance that mootools and flash on a page are not going to be a problem as I and the client like the progress so far.
Best wishes Richard

Ok I will assume it is of little concern and I will continue with mootools!! I would be interested to hear from Weaver though if an upgrade is on its way.

Best wishes
