What % above the fold for ads?

Many years ago, I had some ad folks telling me that a 300x250 ad had
to show 1/3 above the fold (1024x768) to be sold as an
"above-the-fold" ad. It was some other fraction for a 160x600.

Either IAB.net doesn't have those details along with their other
specs, or I'm just not finding them.

Does anyone have a link to some kind of industry-wide accepted
standards or guidelines that answers the question: How much of the ad
has to show ATF before it can be sold as being ATF?

good interface examples for web basedapplications

As I said in my first post on this subject I have been intimately involved
in CMS UI design for the last 3 years.

Mitja, e-mailed me privately that EMC was meant to be ECM as in Enterprise
Content Management. I suggest people use the term CMS b/c a silly company
decided to buy the biggest vendor of CMS and their name is EMC ... Silly
name people.

Saying that designers are upset with CMS is like going to the prom and
saying the decorations stink and complaining about the band and the food
when you decided to have nothing to do with the preparation.

Where have we been?

What is a Landing Page?

> I'm curious what your feelings are regarding what a landing page is

I think Wikipedia's somehow right when defining a "landing page",
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Landing_page>. (Skipping my own thoughts
for now.)
