Hi Charles,

My understanding is that rendering includes many things like accessibility, personalization, internationalization etc. and here the intent is to keep the definition at high level.
An alternative is to keep the definition simple and explain rendering in another statement.

With regards

Subject: Re: definition of Web Publication

My one question/point of clarification is with “manifest refers to an abstract means to contain information necessary to the proper management, rendering, and so on, of a publication.” 
I am just worried about “rendering” is such a loaded word and for accessibility there may be need for alternative rendering which is what a reading system or UA may offer so I am just concerned with what exactly we were thinking here.

  The DPUB IG proposed a definition of Web Publications [1, 2]
  Here are the short definitions. Please see [1] for the longer definition.
  ·  A Web Publication (WP) is a collection of one or more constituent resources, organized together in a uniquely identifiable grouping that may be presented using standard Open Web Platform technologies.
  ·  A Packaged Web Publication (PWP) is a Web Publication whose constituent resources are combined into a single distributable file, using some standard packaging format.
  ·  In this document, manifest refers to an abstract means to contain information necessary to the proper management, rendering, and so on, of a publication. This is opposed to metadata that contains information on the content of the publication like author, publication date, and so on. The precise format of how such a manifest is stored is not considered in this document.
  If you are happy with these definitions, a simple +1 vote is sufficient. If you are not, please vote -1 and propose revisions.
  Thank you,
