The current definition of web page is below.   Since FTP and email also use
URIs it has been suggested that we include HTTP  in the definition.  So that
it reads   [edits shown in square brackets]

 


Web Page


a non-embedded resource [obtained] from a single URI [using HTTP] plus any
other resources that are used in the rendering or intended to be rendered
together with it by a user agent
<http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/WCAG20/#useragentdef>  

 

Comments? 

Thanks

Web page 


a non-embedded resource from a single URI plus any other resources that are
used in the rendering or intended to be rendered together with it by a user
agent <http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/WCAG20/#useragentdef>  

Note 1: Although any "other resources" would be rendered together with the
primary resource, they would not necessarily be rendered simultaneously with
each other.

Note 2: For the purposes of conformance with these guidelines, a resource
must be "non-embedded" within the scope of conformance to be considered a
Web page.

Example 1: A Web resource including all embedded images and media.

Example 2: A Web mail program built using Asynchronous JavaScript and XML
(AJAX). The program lives entirely at http://example.com/mail, but includes
an inbox, a contacts area and a calendar. Links or buttons are provided that
cause the the inbox, contacts, or calendar to display, but do not change the
URL of the page as a whole.

Example 3: A customizable portal site, where users can choose content to
display from a set of different content modules.

Example 4: When you enter "http://shopping.example.com/" in your browser,
you enter a movie-like interactive shopping environment where you visually
move about a store dragging products off of the shelves around you and into
a visual shopping cart in front of you. Clicking on a product causes it to
be demonstrated with a specification sheet floating alongside.
