You can try this Flash to HTML 5 converter from Google.

In all honestly though, your probably going to need someone who has done this before. With automatic conversions, like the one I mentioned above from Google, nothing is 100% guaranteed.  We have no idea what your Flash piece looks like and we don't know anything about it.

To LZ1,

Thanks.

Yes of course I understand that something automating might not do the job. I was also thinking of references to the "techniques", not just automating the whole thing.

Thanks

The same standards apply to HTML 5 as they do to HTML 4. Same with CSS 3 to CSS 2.1.  I personally haven't seen a whole lot of "techniques" or examples as of yet.  As I stated above, it will depend on what your Flash is doing and what HTML 5 will have to do to make up for it.

If you can, I would go with an open-source conversion like the Google Swiffy or the Smokescreen as seen in the article below.  Then once that's done, you can try to fill in the missing elements by asking questions on EE.

I'll try one of those (or maybe both) with a fairly simple flash & see what I get.

Thanks!
