[Xerte] Re: Glossary, video, visibility issues in HTML5 preview and deployment

I found two mistakes in the Glossary, Bunk and I already forgot the
other one (they had a Term, but no definition)
Furthermore, the first page is a textVideo page without a video (the
video now says 'Select a video') and xerte tries to find out the type of
'Select a video'by looking for its extension, which obviously doesn't exist.
So try this one, and select a video on the first page, and check what
works and what doesn't work. Let me know if I can help you further.
By the way, if you copy this data.xml into the project, be sure to copy
this file over preview.xml as well!
