	NOTE: "Closed captioning" refers to captions that can be turned
on or off (shown or hidden) by the user.  "Open captions", in contrast,
refers to captions that are an integral part of a video image and cannot
be turned off by anyone.  

 How about "Open captions, in contrast, refers to captions that are
displayed and that can not be disabled by the user"


This is a slight update on the old version of open captions, since the
other definition is specific to broadcast television.  It does apply to
web-video also, but there are other ways to deliver open captions on the
web, such as when you add captions in a quickTime movie embedded in a
web page.
