    This is a link to a Chinese Canadian newspaper. It's a scanned copy made available to the public. Needless to say, I was unable to view it with the latest iPad at a Best Buy.

    ????? - WJ ePaper

    Is it safe to assume that this page cannot be viewed because it requires a flash plugin ?

    ...it appears that the link does not show on my iPad. Not sure if the link is broken or not.

    Thanks,

    Thanks Skimonkey -

    the link opens OK using my PC and a Surface RT.

    Here's a screenshot of it. By the looks of the toolbars highlighted with yellow at the bottom, it appears to be flash based.

    A million thanks.

    I was planning to give my mom a Surface RT, but now that I know the iPad accepts chinese handwriting input and her favorite newspaper is viewable, I'm going with the iPad.
