Modificaitons post meeting:

  • Took out b and i in favor of strong and em.
  • Keeping Object tag

Discussion:

  • Including dl, dt, dd (definition list)
Unicode support:

Decision was for players to support unicode characters. For browser, this is native and should not be a problem. 

For non-browser based player (eg, Flash), best efforts should be made, specially for characters needing escaping.

  • No labels

  1. If object is not included, how will we support incorporation of audio and video? Through the DAM only? Just checking.
