[WSG] RE: Best Practice - Content Within Tables

2011-10-14 Thread Lapcewich, Dennis
Thanks to all who responded, and confirmed my initial view.

My reason for asking the obvious is that within a government agency, we seem to 
have an excess of pickers of nits (often outside of the actual expertise) who 
just won't take no for an answer.  The views offered here gave me several 
different ways to say the same thing.  On top of this, we are using an archaic 
CMS system (directed to use by those above us) that does not lend itself well 
to best practices.   I really did need those 1,000 different methods to change 
the light bulb because of the low wattage dim wits that often try to brighten 
my day with their bug light prowess (BZa!).  :)

Thanks all!

[WSG] Best Practice - Content Within Tables

2011-10-12 Thread Lapcewich, Dennis
Folks,

I'm seeking some best practices advice.

Is it a best practice to wrap content in a table cell using p tags?  Or just 
properly code the td and/or th tags?  We have a couple of schools of 
thought raging at the moment and I've been tasked to seek the wisdom of others.

RE: [WSG] Fwd: Video in web page

Take a look at Adobe’s Open Source Media Framework program --- 
http://www.osmf.org/index.php

Granted, it’s Flash-based but they do have information which may be helpful for 
non-Flash users.  And it’s all free.

Subject: [WSG] Fwd: Video in web page


Hello,

I would be grateful if someone could clarify the best means of embedding video 
into a web page so as to be viewable by the widest range of users (desktop, 
mobile, different OSs, etc).

Embedding Flash video is easy enough, however, iPhone / iPad users cannot view 
this format and I need to address these users. (I would also like users of 
other mobile devices to be able to view the video, but the iOS issue has been 
insurmountable thus far).

Alternative formats suffer plugin difficulties. As we know, support for the 
video element is still patchy.

Has anyone managed to find a way through this obstacle course? If so, I would 
be grateful for your suggestions!

Many thanks and regards,
