Jim,

The phrase we try to use throughout the specification is "resource is
unavailable" or "unavailable resource".  We have updated this section to use
that phrase.  We have also added a definition of the term unavailable resource
for clarity.

> Dear HTML Working Group,
> 
> What does "not presentable" mean in the following sentence of 19.1
> 
> "Like the object element, this element's content is only presented if the 
> referenced resource is not presentable."
> 
> Please clarify this to say exactly what cases an image may be not 
> presentable, for example:
> 
> <img src="chicken" type="text/ecmascript">Fallback!</img>
> 
> A javascript resource has no presentation, so is not presentable, therefore 
> the fallback should be used, or not?
> 
> Please specify this in a manner identical to other fallback behaviour in 
> Section 17, although please ensure this is clarified first.
