Using the media insert buttons.

Because of the way the two media insert buttons work, using them is not totally intuitive.
The one that looks like a world is for iframe’s and take a url to display in the iFrame.
The one that looks like a filmstrip is for embed content provided by another site.
Often a site provides embed content that is actually an iFrame, but you still use the embed media button to insert it into the page because it is html, not a url.
However, once an iFrame is embedded into the page you can modify it with the iFrame button … change it size and float it etc.
This is not totally intuitive, but these plugins are made by others and these were the best fit for our needs. Most other similar plugins had way too many extra features and options and junk for this site.
Someday I could write my own plugin to do it intuitively and nicely … if I feel like it.
