I had an action item to identify where "web content" was used to determine
whether we needed to define it;
It is used in the following 3 locations. All easily handled
1) a note in definition of General and Red Flash Thresholds
* Note 1: For general Web content, using a 341 x 256 pixel rectangle
anywhere on the displayed screen area when the content is viewed at 1024 x
768 pixels will provide a good estimate of a 10 degree visual field for
standard screen sizes and viewing distances.
Recommendation: Change to Web Pages or leave as is.
2) a note in definition of Relative luminance
Note 2: Almost all systems used today to view Web content assume sRGB
encoding. Unless it is known that another color space will be used to
process and display the content, authors should evaluate using sRGB
colorspace. If using other color spaces, see Understanding Success Criterion
Recommendation: Change to "Software and Web Pages"
3) Title of 8.2
8.2 Additional requirements for Web Content Authoring Tools
Recommendation: Remove the words "Web Content"
