Version: 1.12 Mar 6, 2009 6:53 pm -0600 by Max Starkenburg
Changes:
  * Use actual @id and @alt values in code used to generated the examples as used in the example <code> above them (i.e. no more <media id="id2348958" alt="">)
  * Use techsupport@cnx.org instead of @cnx.rice.edu
  * Refer to quarterly_report_desc.html consistently (sometimes it's called longdesc.txt)
  * Make the list about MIME types a labeled-item list, and replace "media type" with "mime-type"
  * Fix indentation on many of the example codes.
  * Removed references to non-existent @print-height and replaced it with text explaining, where appropriate, that the height will be proportional to the width
  * Fixed incorrect information about unit specification for @print-width.
  * Tried to include more text about other possibilities of using print alternatives (such as a <video>/<image> combo) and include a caveat about what happens if <longdesc> is the first child of <media>. Could probably use some rewriting.
  * Improved @alt values for <subfigure>, <flash>, <video>, and <java-applet> images to be more like how we hope users write them.
  * Removed @src attribute from applet-generating code.
  * Re-added section about <param> use, and included a different example ("title" for <audio>), and removed examples of <param> usage that are now handled as attributes. 
  * Made links to external pages open in new window
  * Removed link to spec
  * Changed dimensions of video to eliminate some white space
