    4365 <t>
    4366    This specification uses a number of terms to refer to the roles
    4367    played by participants in, and objects of, the HTTP communication.

    4371   <x:dfn>content negotiation</x:dfn>
    4372   <list>
    4373     <t>
    4374       The mechanism for selecting the appropriate representation when
    4375       servicing a request, as described in &content.negotiation;. The
    4376       representation of entities in any response can be negotiated
    4377       (including error responses).

    4383   <x:dfn>entity</x:dfn>
    4384   <list>
    4385     <t>
    4386       The information transferred as the payload of a request or
    4387       response. An entity consists of metadata in the form of
    4388       entity-header fields and content in the form of an entity-body, as
    4389       described in &entity;.

    4396   <list>
    4397     <t>
    4398       An entity included with a response that is subject to content
    4399       negotiation, as described in &content.negotiation;. There may exist multiple
    4400       representations associated with a particular response status.
    4401     </t>

    4407   <list>
    4408     <t>
    4409       A resource may have one, or more than one, representation(s)
    4410       associated with it at any given instant. Each of these
    4411       representations is termed a `variant'.  Use of the term `variant'
    4412       does not necessarily imply that the resource is subject to content
    4413       negotiation.
