Techniques and tools for code table selection and joint coding/decoding of macroblock mode information for macroblocks of interlaced forward-predicted frames are described. For example, a video decoder decodes a variable length code that jointly signals macroblock mode information for a motion-compensated macroblock. The jointly signaled information includes a macroblock type, whether a coded block pattern is present or absent, and whether motion vector data is present or absent for the motion-compensated macroblock. A video encoder performs corresponding encoding.
