...eventually. Perhaps. Its worth noting that you can't do much of the stuff you can in Flash in HTML/CSS currently and HTML 5 is still very much in its infancy.
You always take a risk betting on stuff that should be supported in a standard. Remember it only takes one major browser manufacturer (Microsoft, I'm looking at you) to not support somthing or vier off from the standard to compromise it.
I'm currious to know why your boss wants an existingApplet turned into Flex - to my mind that makes no sense at all, unless you have clients that will not allow a JRE on client machines (which is a problem we have with some of our clients). No other justification makes any sense.
