Here's my contribution for appendix B.5:

----

1. The user requests resource P on website S.

2. The CT-proxy intercepts the request and requests resource P with
original headers.

3. The server returns a HTTP Status 200 OK and content designed for a
specific browser, as that is what resource P specifically is. However,
in the HTML mark-up the server includes a <link type="alternate"
media="handheld" href="Q" /> to indicate that it has equivalent content
in different formats at different URIs.

4. If Q is equal to P this confirms that the content is the handheld
version of a range of available formats and the CT-proxy parses the
response, may apply transformation if needed and possible, and forwards
the response to the user.

4. If Q does not equal P, the CT-proxy recognises that the alternate
handheld format is more suitable for the user and makes a request for
resource Q, still using original headers.

5. The server returns a HTTP Status 200 OK and content designed for a
handheld browser.

6. The CT-proxy parses the response, may apply transformation if needed
and possible, and forwards the response to the user.

Thanks,

Rob
