Which guidelines or success criteria would include this, and which would stay delivery unit?  This wasn't completely clear from the minutes of Thursday's call.

Subject: Web Pages (including Web Applications)

Hi All,

 We just settled on Web pages (and other primary resources) when we discovered today that this doesn't work.

A Web pages is "a primary resource and all of the secondary resources intended to be rendered together)"

The phrase  "other primary resources" would have to be extended to in our definition to
"Web pages (and other primary resources with their secondary resources intended to be rendered together)."

Clear this doesn't work.

Otherwise we are saying something like    "humans and other Anglo Saxons"   The second part is a subset of the first - not 'another".


We change to
Web Pages (including Web Applications)

This will give us a term with two parts that both make sense

We went to the Web Applications Working Group site and it says its scope it
Client side applications

In our definition of "Web Pages (including Web Applications)"
we can make it clear we are talking about Web Apps that are client side - or the client side of them.
