Subject: Re: [dita] definition of resource

By "resource" we mean what the URI specification means by "resource":


         A resource can be anything that has identity.  Familiar
         examples include an electronic document, an image, a service
         (e.g., "today's weather report for Los Angeles"), and a
         collection of other resources.  Not all resources are network
         "retrievable"; e.g., human beings, corporations, and bound
         books in a library can also be considered resources.


DITA is a Web application (as is XML), so for the purposes of addressing,
all addresses that are not keys are URIs and therefore we use the IETF and
W3C terminology that applies in those cases.
