I like non-Web much better, even if it is less precise technically.  It reads better to me.

Subject: Key Terms, AND dropping Non-embedded,

Per my action item to work on KEY TERMS section - here is the result

NOTE: The access board asked us to solve our problems WITHOUT using the term "non-embedded content"
They don't want to use that term -- for all the same reasons we don't..

so I took a crack at doing this WITHOUT the term -- using "non-web content" instead

-- here are the Key Terms using this new approach

here is a draft of the Key Terms section that reflects the WCAG WG desire to not use 'non-embedded content"
It is located at

 - to see what it would look like to use "non-web content" instead of "non-embedded content"

I created a spread sheet showing the new terms all in place
see column "C" in the spreadsheet at
