# The hedgehog and the Vox

I followed a link to this page on Vox today. Above the story was a big black box that I expected to fill with a video once the page was fully downloaded. Instead it stayed black, with these words in gray across the top:

As you can see, the video was Flash, and I don’t see anything in the code that’s unique to HTML 5, although I’m certainly not an expert. What I did see, in addition to the misleading error message, was that the video was buried a dozen divs deep and that Safari found 50 things to warn about and 7 outright errors. The warnings were almost all invalid CSS declarations, and the errors were all about frames being blocked because they were trying to access content with a different origin.
