Define it like, whatever the things you see or rendered on your screen.

Go try the URI and see what the author says. If he didn't, use it whatever
way you want. If the author is not careful of making such statement, it is
his careless. If the author says one way, and you insist the other way,
then it is your ignorance or arrogance.

It is not the job of TAG to say how a people uses a particular URI. It is
just it is not anyone's job to say how a English word is used. Dictionary
publishers does not define a word usage. It only documents how a word is
used. The usage is defined by a community.
