Adobe on HTML 5

Adobe CEO Shantanu Narayen, in response to a question about whether HTML 5 is a threat to Flash:

I think the challenge for HTML 5 will continue to be how do you get a consistent display of HTML 5 across browsers. And when you think about when the rollout plans that are currently being talked about, they feel like it might be a decade before HTML 5 sees standardization across the number of browsers that are going to be out there.

Translation into plain English: We’re not worried about HTML 5 because we know IE will never support it.
