Hi Bert,

This message contains a response to comments on


1.  DPF allows a client to learn about a device's capabilities and
configuration, which enables dynamic (on-the-fly) document generation
suitable for a given media size; however, it does not provide for
static generation of contents which present suitably on a variety of
media sizes.


DPF covers static properties as well as dynamic. The Working Group  
believe this question refers to vocabularies that references the DIWG  
CPC work item. As a result, we have added the following text to the  
introduction: However, it is the intent of the Device Independence  
Working Group [DIWG] to specify representations of ontology's through  
[OWL], as well as presentation characteristics being developed by the  
[DIWG] through Core Presentation Characteristics [CPC] work item  

Informative Reference: CPC "Device Independance Working Group  
Charter, Work Item: Core Presentation Characterisitics Version 1.0",  
Rhys Lewis (Chair). (See http://www.w3.org/2004/05/di-
