Hi Matt

I think including a epub example in a set of web pages wouldn't preclude a
more specific definition of epub at a later time, or even in a later
version of WCAG ... on the other hand, maybe we could introduce a new term
in 2.1 if we have it very soon.

It just seems to me that "a set of web pages" and inherent in that the "web
page definition" of the base URL and associated assets, is a perfect short
term definition that would accomplish what George mentioned about working
epub into the web page framework so that the WCAG Success Criteria can
explicitly apply to epub.

Although just the fact that they sit at a URL already allows WCAG Success
Criteria to apply to epub, and WCAG2ICT applies when its offline.

Cheers,
David MacDonald
