One of my favorite online newspaper publishes it's paper 
version in a similar way, http://papeldigital.info/lt/

This is a flash object with ActionScript, the page 
thumbnails are rendered as JPEG-2000 images. The lot is 
either compressed or encrypted, I haven't been able to 
dissect these objects; anyway my win2k partition hasn't been 
bootable for a while (who cares) so I haven't tried recently 
to load those into Macromedia Flash Editor. Didn't work last 
Am afraid doing this is difficult with open and free tools.
If you're on Linux you can check out F4L (Flash for Linux) 
they're now in version:  0.2.1, homepage: http://f4l.sf.net/
