To #2 below, cut-paste does work in Flash, but you need different keys.  To 
paste, use "ctrl-v" instead of "ctrl-insert".

I spent a fair amount of time a few months ago using MOS,
coming to the conclusion I didn't really like it.

As I pondered this, I recalled a couple more things that
just seemed to get in the way.

1. search on a page via the browser no longer works.
This is limited to the flash pages. I believe it still worked
when reading a document.

2. Also in Flash, cut and paste no longer work from the keyboard.

Apologies for the rant, but am I the only one with a problem caused by 
MetaLink's "retirement"?

It turns out My Oracle Support is not supported on (for example) HP-UX B.11.11 
(no Flash 9 for HP-UX), and that's what I have to use at work.
A strange decision by Oracle, to say the least. What's next - Knowledge Base 
notes will only be available in Word format, maybe?
