I apologize for getting this out to the list so late-- I thought I had
sent it several days ago!
 
 
Here's another attempt to define the term "structure." This proposal
tries to address issues raised in the recent discussion while also
integrating terminology
used in the Guidelines.
<proposed>
 
Structure:
 
a. The way the parts of an authored unit are organized in relation to
each other
 
b. The way a collection of authored units is organized in relation to a
delivery unit;
 
c. The way a collection of delivery units is organized
</proposed>
The terms "authored unit" and "delivery unit" are used in the Guidelines
and defined in the Glossary [1, 2]; the definitions are taken from the
Glossary
for Device Independence [3].
