Public Facing Website in "wrong" location

SharePoint Online Public Website - can we use ASP.NET content?
Is it possible to have ASP.NET-based pages for the public-facing website provided by Office365/SharePoint Online? I know that SharePoint is ASP.NET-based so it seemed plausible. Also, is it possible to use Visual Studio 2010 to connect directly to this public-facing site to upload and modify content...

Compatibility between Chrome & IE wrt to website?
I'm experienced using MSOL for my website - chindiapedia.org . I am now testing how to move my 60 pages to Office 365!

Public Website Samples/Examples/Gallery
I have searched the forums and have found individual sites that are hosted on the Office 365 public site, but I was wondering if there is a list or gallery that shows what is possible with the public website?

Trouble with Tables
After I insert a table into an empty zone, I find that I can not place any anything else in that zone.

Where do I put the *.swf files for the public facing site?
I want to add some flash animation to my public facing website in Office 365. I can add the html iframe statement alright but where do I put the swf files?

Re: A Records for Public Facing Websites
Don R Smallman
You are welcome! You can try looking that IP up at http://www.dnsstuff.com/ . If it belongs to Microsoft, then it may be the correct one. I think the DNS lookup will give you what ever IP is set in the DNS for that domain (Whether it is the correct IP or not), so if the A record for that domain...
