The second construction is listed as にのっての、I may be wrong, but is it not とって?

So when does one know when it's okay to use にとって and when とうwill suffice?

They are quite different, in my opinion. にとって is most often used to introduce the viewpoint/situation of someone or something. It is often found at the beginning of the sentence.

う, on the other hand, simply states something you think (in simple terms), and is found at the end of the sentence.

I hope this helps some - please let me know if you would like more info.

なら also has a meaning of "As for A" so what's the difference between this and なら? Or is it like なら and the ~えば construction of verbs in that they are effectively the same thing?
