Drupal Database Best Practices?

I've been using Drupal now for a couple of years but I'm still learning how to program for Drupal and what the best practices are for this.

My question is about adding tables to the database. For the tables that I need to use on my site, is it better practice to add these to the Drupal database (prefixing them so that they are easily separated from the Drupal tables) or should I create a separate database for site specific tables?

Thanks,
Dan

Hi folks.
I was wondering something.
Last night, when I had someone visit my website wich you all may review at:
http://keithnet.dyndns.org
I was told seriously that the font is not optimal for people with low vision.
As I have committed myself to insureing my site is optimized for low vision users as well as screen reader users, hear is what I need to know.
It should be noted that I'm using Druapl Core without modification, I.e. No eextra themes, etc.
What I'm using is the default Draupl core layout as designed after an installation witht he bartic theme.

How to present opening hours

Hiya. Do you have suggestions for storing and presenting opening hours in Drupal 7? This is quite a mundane and universal problem, so i'm absolutely sure this has been solved in many ways. There is the Opening Hours -module, which isn't available for D7 at this time though. The Danish ting.DING uses Office Hours, and present this information very well (see the Aarhus libraries f.ex.) in a list, on a map and for individual libraries.

Best Practices - Installing Drupal

Is it best to install Drupal at root level (public_html)?
Or is it better to create a Drupal folder (public_html/Drupal) and install there.

Are there pros and cons, warnings... or does it simply not matter?
Also, are there ramifications regarding multisite install or subdomains?

As always, thanks so much for your insights.

Photo gallery slideshow delivery method-Best practices.

In my endeavor to convert a photo slideshow from one site to another I ran into a dilemma.

What is the best practice for slideshow delivery?

I ask this because it was drilled into us (students) about being web tidy, best practices, contributing to make the web and servers as green as possible. Not to mention shooting for an ultra-light site for fast delivery and higher possible rankings on search engines.

The two contenders (maybe more?) are:

1) Using one or more of the modules in Drupal (which is best, fastest and easiest to implement and for client side updating)?
