Abstract: Let be a dendrite whose endpoints are dense and let be the complement in of a dense -compact collection of endpoints of . This paper investigates various general position properties that finite products of and possess. In particular, it is shown that (i) if is an -space that satisfies the disjoint -cells property, then satisfies the disjoint -cells property, (ii) is a compact -dimensional that satisfies the disjoint -cells property, (iii) is a compact -dimensional that satisfies the stronger general position property that maps of -dimensional compacta into are approximable by both -maps and -embeddings, and (iv) is a topologically complete -dimensional that satisfies the discrete -cells property and as such, maps from topologically complete separable -dimensional spaces into are strongly approximable by closed -embeddings.
