"This document describes the Device Description Repository Core Vocabulary for Content Adaptation in the Mobile Web, described in the charter of the Device Descriptions Working Group, as well as the process by which the Vocabulary was defined"


"This document identifies properties that are considered essential for adaptation of content in the mobile Web"

+ Comment: We need to be coherent in the nomenclature, if Mobile Web starts with upper case, it should start with upper case in every place



... baseline Vocabulary for implementations of the Device Description Repository (DDR)

+ Comment: vocabulary shouldn't start with upper case letter (I think)
+ Comment: people might misunderstand that there is unique DDR

Suggested change:

"for Device Description Repository Implementations"



"The Vocabulary makes reference to the ontology for the Web Delivery Context which is being developed by the W3C UWA Working Group [UWA-Ontology]."

Comment: We are not actually cross referencing the DC Ontology. Shouldn't this text be dropped?


Aspects of the Core Vocabulary

"Work on Aspects of the Delivery Context continues, however, for the purposes of this Vocabulary two specific Aspects are identified."

Comment: The phrase is unmeaningful to me ...


I suggest that aspects have an specific chapter with an structure similar to the properties

+ Aspects
|---- Device


Property Names and Property Value Types

"The Property identifiers are associated with the namespace http://www.w3.org/2008/01/ddr-core-vocabulary"

Comment: We need to say clearly that we are referring to the core vocabulary and that other vocabularies will also have its own IRI identifier


When id's of aspects or properties are referenced in the text, they should be put between <code> tags, to allow a better internationalization of the document


In the examples, shouldn't we stay away from naming specific products, such as Mozilla Firefox?



"Identified as an important Property by the DDWG in its Top N finding. Present in UAProf. Present (and used) in existing adaptation solutions"

Comment: "Top N finding" and "UAProf" should be present as references in the document



"Needed if the screen orientation is rotated 90 degrees, in which case this Property would represent the width of the rotated screen."

Comment: This sentence should be dropped as it is even wrong if the screen it's rotated this will represent the height of the display



"Count the number of bits usable  ...."

Comment: I suggest changing "usable" by "available"



"Set of image formats a client supports as part of a Web page"

Comment: Do we really need to say "as part of a Web page"



"Which scripting languages are supported."

Comment: It should say "Set of scripting languages a client supports" if we want to be coherent with the rest of the property description


Nothing more for the moment

Asunto: RE: Core Vocabulary 1g

This will be on the agenda for next Monday, with the intention of proposing that it be moved forward for publication. Any remaining issues, if any, should be noted in advance on the mailing list, or otherwise we should assume there are no issues and we can resolve to publish.

Hi Folks

Pls find the latest draft at


hopefully we will resolve to make this official version of the W3C Note on Core Vocabulary.

Use http://www.w3.org/2007/10/htmldiff to find differences between it and previous versions.
