+<section id="abstract"><h2>Abstract</h2>
+<p>A global distributed Social Web requires that each person be able to control their identity, that this identity be linkable across sites -  placing each person in a Web of relationships - and that it be possible to authenticate globally with such identities. By making distributed authentication easy one can allow everybody to protect their resources and enable their preferred privacy settings.</p>
+<section id="outline"><h2>Specifications</h2>
+  <dt><a href="identity-respec.html">WebID 1.0 - Web Identity and Discovery</a></dt>
+  <dd>This specification outlines a simple universal identification mechanism that is distributed, openly extensible, improves privacy, security and control over how each person can identify themselves in order to allow fine grained access control to their information on the Web. It does this by applying the best practices of Web Architecture whilst building on well established widely deployed protocols and standards including HTML, URIs, HTTP, and RDF Semantics.</dd>
+  <dt><a href="tls-respec.html">WebID-TLS - WebID Authentication over TLS</a></dt>
+  <dd> The WebID-TLS protocol enables secure, efficient and maximally user friendly authentication on the Web using TLS and X.509 Certificates. It enables people to authenticate onto any site by simply choosing one of the certificates proposed to them by their browser. These certificates can be created by any Web Site for their users. This specification extends the WebID Identity specification which defines many of the core concepts used in WebID-TLS. </dd>
