  •  However if you want to be highly interactive and rich (like this one) - go wtih Silverlight. (There are ways to make your silverlight app indexable - nice video from mix)

    Or why not mixing Silverligh and HTML. :)

    Hope this helps you a little.

  • Silverlight is a technology for building Rich Internet Applications. These are applications which would behave much like a windows application with highly interactive graphics. If you are looking fro a general utility website its not always a good idea to use silverlight. If you are looking for a site with interactive content video and graphics you should opt for silverlight.

  • If you want to be good indexed by search engines is always better to do it html.
