comment Update taxonomy field value with REST
Rob: Is it possible to filter by a taxonomy column? Something like &$select=Score/WssId &$expand=Score/WssId &$filter=Score/TermGuid eq 7f4bd49f-8dbc-4e6f-a165-cbdf4b0ba7d1. I'm trying to do this following AC's post here: andrewconnell.com/blog/…

comment Two dropdowns for one field?
You can generate the filter values in JavaScript, but you'll have to pass in CAML to make it work. If you make the column a lookup column to another list, you can also do things like marking each value as active or not, or filter just on the contents of a specific view.

comment SPServices retrieving Rich Text Values
Glad you got it working. These inconsistencies are things that .NET developers have been highly insulated from for years. Now that you're all starting to look into the DOMs, you're seeing what warts Microsoft hath wrought.

comment SPServices retrieving Rich Text Values
Because of the way .NET and SharePoint render those controls, there's not as much consistency as you're hoping for. It's all over the map. You really need to inspect the elements with the IE Developer Tools, Firebug, etc., in order to figure out what to select.

comment How do I give tasks a priority relative to other tasks
I use jQueryUI's .sortable() function (jqueryui.com/sortable), often in tandem with a DVWP to lay down the initial data.

comment REST and CSOM much slower than List Web Service
Very interesting data. I suppose we'd need to run similar queries in multiple environments against different sources to be sure, but the numbers feel right based on my experience. If you think about the transformations which must occur under the covers (none of which are "free"), it makes some sense.
