Bug 506 - Defn of Structure

Quite a while back I was assigned the task of clarifying the definition of
structure based on University of Kansas comments.




My proposed wording is in the Doc now. 


But the bug is still sending me daily reminders, I think perhaps because an
action item was taken by Jason and John to look at it. 


There is one piece of the University of Kansas' concerns that have not yet
been addressed. That is the clarification between structural backend code,
and structure of what is delivered to the client.(For example the difference
between backend PHP commands, which they consider to be structural elements,
that the user doesn't receive and HTML code like H1, H2 etc that the user
does receive.) 


So I think they would want a phrase like "structural elements that are
received by the client" in the definition.


I don't know if we can make that distinction without getting into some nasty
gray areas with transcoders and the like.but I though I would bring it up
since that was their concern. And I'm hoping to close the bug and the
friendly daily Bugzilla emails.
