Hello, all 

This is Sung-Ok You from Infraware. I’ve recently joined the WG.

I’m writing to propose mapping extension for e-book. 

I heard that the group has already discussed it. During the discussion, the browser vendors said that e-books are not multimedia or tied to the web.


Please examine my opinion regarding this. 

I think e-books can be considered as multimedia.[1] When the WG defined its charter, it defined the scope of multimedia as video, audio, image, text under Video on the Web Activity. However now we can expand the scope of media services based on Web. Lots of e-book are serviced based on Web to download. Also we can expect a commercial service based on browsers if we handle copyright issues regarding DRM. If we organize these information on the web through standardization work, it will help to reduce market fragmentation. It also helps to offer integrated services with e-book. 


Recently W3C Digital Publication Community Group(http://www.w3.org/community/digipub/participants) was set up. They will start a discussion soon. I think we can look for good approach with them. 


If you have any comments or suggestions about it, please feel free to let me know. 


[1] http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multimedia

Static content (such as a paper book) may be considered multimedia if it contains both pictures and text or may be considered interactive if the ser interacts by turning pages at will. Books may also be considered non-linear if the pages are accessed non-sequentially. 



Best Regards, 

SunK-Ok, You
