Thanks, David, this is a good start. I'd just suggest that we keep any definition of a web publication agnostic to specific formats.


As Tzviya mentioned on the call, the DPUB group will be taking up the issues from yesterday on their next call, so we'll have more to say about example wording and metadata after we can involve the full group.

Subject: DPUB Set of Web Pages


Note: DPUB members, this is my personal opinion, not speaking for WG


Today we discussed ways that we could role a DPUB package into our definition of web page.


DPUB packages have more than one URL, and as such cannot be considered under our current definition as a web page. However, we have a useful definition in WCAG which lends itself ideally to a DPUB document. That is a "Set of Web Pages"


set of Web pages

collection of  <https://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20/#webpagedef> Web pages that share a common purpose and that are created by the same author, group or organization

Note: Different language versions would be considered different sets of Web pages.



We could add something like this to the definition


"Example: An epub publication has a table of contents and 25 separate URLs representing each chapter of a digital book."


If the DPUB team has Success Criteria they would like to propose for WCAG, for DEC 1st, I suggest they submit them using this definition. For instance, if they want ways to link from a TOC to another chapter of the document and back, they could propose something like:


       "Every link from a Table of Contents in a set of web pages has a corresponding link back to the Table of Contents"


Of course this SC  is just off the top of my head but it gives an idea of how this type of SC could be written with this language.



Also we discussed meta data as a means of reporting conformance. WCAG 2 has a discussion of meta data in Appendix C which may be useful.
