Agreed. Good points.

Video and music are great things to have on a site but need to be able to be controlled by the viewer.

I also want to add that .PDF links should be used very sparingly and not as menu navigation. I'm utterly annoyed when I visit a page and click on a menu option only to find out that instead of taking me to another page of the site I'm at, it loads the Adobe Reader plugin and forces me to view a .pdf without warning.

This portable document format is a lovely thing, but it should be pointed out (next to the link in question) that the viewer is about to click on a .pdf link and that they may or may not need to download Adobe Reader to view it in. By simply placing an Adobe Reader icon next to the link it make the link format much more obvious.

When I'm surfing a website, often times I've also got several other applications running, and the last thing I want is to have Adobe Reader spring forth and start loading on top of all of that.
