Can Ruby on Rails be used to build a website? How good can flash/flex/actionscript files be integrated with a ROR application?

Rails is an application framework for developing web-based applications. It works quite well for building websites and/or web applications. Perhaps you've heard of twitter?

Flex works well with it, too -- Manning has a book, Flexible Rails, about that topic.

Yup, as Matt pointed out Flex with Rails works great. You can use Flash, etc. perfectly fine since it just generates HTML.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
