Dear Makoto, 

From my remote island, I will have three comments:
- The title of this thread (Identifying a book on the Web today) and the issue of URLs for resources embedded in a PWP are not related, which makes following threads (and searching in threads in the future) rather hard.
- we agreed to tackle issues with PWPs after WPs are clear. Your issue definitely seems to be related with PWPs.
- I still don't see why *all* discussions have moved from github to emails. The expected split btw generic and specific discussions, envisaged by Tzviya initially if I recall well, does not work in practice IMHO.
