This is meant primarily to differentiate between Web content and - say -
downloading a software program.  

If you see a way to tweak this - please post.

Subject: RE: downloads

Hi Gregg,
A question. I think that every user can configure user agents for open
contents both inside browser and as stand-alone.
Some example:
- pdf: can Be downloaded, open in Adobe Acrobat Reader or view inside web
browser window.
- ppt: can be downloaded, viewed directly in browser (with ie only) or view
inside a Viewer.
- mpeg: can Be downloaded, viewed directly in browser (using the default
viewer that the user has choose to use: windows media, quicktime, realone,
winamp, etc.) or view inside a viewer.

So, are we sure that we have a right definition? Or you intend only
client-side application download?

    Oggetto: downloads
    The following note has been added to the Intro to reflect a decision at
    to differentiate downloads from web content
    Editorial Note: The working group is considering adding the following
    to the conformance section to differentiate Web Content from standard
    alone software and other products that are downloaded over the internet.
    Note: If data, software or other data are downloaded over the internet
    are not viewed via a user agent then they are not considered Web content
    are not covered by these guidelines.
    Add this to the discussion of the INTRO tomorrow.
