Hi Luis,

Since the definition is a reference, I'd prefer to not come up with our

I do see your point about how strange that line is. Does anyone know if 
the WAI folks noticed this problem, and have a better definition 
somewhere?

"A user agent is software to access Web content, including desktop
graphical browsers, text browsers, voice browsers, mobile phone
browsers, multimedia player browsers, plug-ins, and some software
assistive technologies used ..... "

ISSUE-29: Define user agent in wsc-usecases

http://www.w3.org/2006/WSC/Group/track/issues/29

Raised by: Mary Ellen Zurko
On product: Note: use cases etc.

Add to section 4.2 the definition from our glossary we are using for

agent:

A user agent is software to access Web content, including desktop
graphical browsers, text browsers, voice browsers, mobile phones,
multimedia players, plug-ins, and some software assistive technologies
used in conjunction with browsers such as screen readers, screen
magnifiers, and voice recognition software. [See W3C Web Content
