Here's a proposal to update our definition of "technology." This is not
covered by last week's survey on Glossary Issues.

<current>
technology
Technology means a data format, programming or markup language, protocol
or API.
</current>

<proposed>
technology
markup languages, programming languages, style sheets, data formats, or
APIs.
</proposed>

Changes:
- delete the phrase "technology means a"; this makes the definition
conform to ISO format.
- Add "style sheets" to the list of things included in the definition;
this corrects an oversight
- Remove "protocol" from the list
- Change singular nouns to plural form
- Reorders the list of things included in the definition so that "markup
languages" appear first.
