CONSIDERATIONS

File weight is measured after all code and assets are stored to a zip file.
The zip file must include ALL assets and reference code such as JavaScript libraries.
Once the zip file is uncompressed, the ad (an html file) must be viewable without a network connection (all code and assets used in the ad are contained in the zip file).
User-Initiated files will not be considered as part of the initial load ad size.

Click here for more information on HTML5.

clickTAGs

All required clickTAGs and interaction calls must be placed within the HTML file without minification or obfuscation.
Variables must be included in the first .html file that loads to aid the ad server in locating the variable to substitute the correct value.
All clicks and interaction buttons must be instrumented before delivery of the completed ad.
When multiple .html files are included, the variable must be present in the first .html file that loads.
The JavaScript code for clickTAGs is as follows:
var clickTAG="http://www.mylandingpage.com";

CLICK DESTINATION METHODS

Use the clickTAG variable for the click event, regardless of the method of navigating within the browser.
If using an anchor tag, set the target attribute to "_blank" to ensure that the click destination opens in a new page or a tab:
<a href=(the URL of the clickTAG) target="_blank"> </a>
In instances of multiple clickthrough URLs within the same ad, enumerate click tags as follows: clickTAG0, clickTAG1, clickTAG2
