I think I understand (?) most of what's discussed concerning 24p 2:3 standard pulldown vs. 24p 2:3:3:2 advanced pulldown in the following thread in the COW's DVX100a forum: http://tinyurl.com/c47ru
... and I've also read Adam Wilt's info on the subject on his website, but I'm a bit unclear about how to handle the following situation:
Is shooting in 24p 2:3 standard pulldown mode appropriate if the primary distribution will be via both broadcast TV _and_ DVD (no film-out)?
If it matters, this will primarily concern NTSC.
Advice & comments appreciated,

That would be the correct way to do it if you are not going to film. Then again if you have a lot of effects then I would shoot those shots in 24pA, so that the pulldown can more efficiently be removed and avoid the interlacing issues that may arise.
Ryan is correct, you should be fine with the 24 with 2:3. Also, if you end up with shots requiring any effects work on, you could remove the 2:3 pullldown out of those shots, do the effects work on them, and then put the 2:3 pulldown back in after the effects work is done on those shots. There are usually tools available in the effects softwares that will let you remove and add the 2:3 pull down to a source clip.
