No 

 

If you download a page - the page is a D U.  But every image on the page is
also a D U.  

 

With the Web Unit - only the page is a W U.   

 

This is important because most of our guidelines where we say  D U  cannot
be met by most Delivery Units.   So we can use Delivery Unit as currently
defined and we can't re-define it.

Isn't the (old) "perceivable unit" the same thing that is meant by (new) Web
Unit?  As per Gregg's note earlier today, the only SC that uses perceivable
unit is 2.4.3.  Both delivery unit and perceivable unit are used to define
content however.

The simple term "content" works well in the definition of structure (below).

The only place we use AUTHORED UNIT is in the definition of Structure

structure

1.      The way the parts of an authored
<http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/WCAG20/appendixA.html#authored-unitdef>  unit are
organized in relation to each other and;

2.      The way a collection of authored units is organized in relation to a
delivery unit and;

3.      The way a collection of delivery
<http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/WCAG20/appendixA.html#deliveryunitdef>  units is
organized

Suggest that we change this definition to

structure

1.      The way the parts of an Web Unit are organized in relation to each
other and;

2.      The way a collection of Web units is organized.

(If we use a term other than Web Unit - substitute the new word for Web Unit
above. )
