Obviously, a web-page with “today’s weather report” is going to change its content over time, so what is it that unites the notion of a resource over time?

The primary product of the World Wide Web Consortium is a W3C Recommendation, a standard for the Web that is explicitly voted on and endorsed by the W3C membership. W3C Recommendations are thought to be similar to IETF RFCs, with normative force due to the degree of formal verification given via voting by the W3C Membership and a set number of implementations to prove interoperability. A number of W3C Recommendations have become very well known technologies, ranging from the vendor-neutral later versions of HTML (Raggett et al.

So, an encoding is a set of precise regularities that can be realized by the message. Thus, one can think of multiple levels of encoding, with the very basic encoding of bits being handled by the protocol TCP/IP, and then the protocol HTTP handing higher-level encodings in textual encodings such as HTML. Unforunately, we are not out of the conceptual thicket yet; there is more to information than encoding. Shannon’s theory does not explain the notion of information fully, since giving someone the number of bits that a message contains does not tell the receiver what information is encoded.
