HTML5 REQUIREMENTS

In addition to the guidelines that pertain to all creatives, keep the following requirements in mind for HTML5:

  • Standard HTML5 display ads are made up of an HTML file and a file of images. The 40KB weight limit should be measured by adding together the sizes of the HTML file and image file.
  • HTML5 Rich Media creatives include polite loading by default. This means the initial load size of the creative includes only the main .html document (which works sort of like a parent .swf file that loads all of the assets). The enabler and external .js libraries/style-sheets are considered subsequent load and are not included within QA test script.
