document profile

From Composite Capability/Preference Profiles (CC/PP): Structure and Vocabularies 1.0 (2004-01-15) | Glossary for this source

Document profiles offer a means to characterize the features appropriate to given categories of user agents. For instance, one profile might include support for style sheets, vector graphics and scripting, while another might be restricted to the tags in HTML 3.2. Document profiles can be used by servers to select between document variants developed for different user agent categories. They can be used to determine what transformations to apply when such variants are not available. Content developers can use document profiles to ensure that their Web sites will be rendered as intended.
