Technical Summary
 
   This document describes a convention for naming and structuring DNS
   resource records. Given a type of service that a client is looking
   for, and a domain in which the client is looking for that service,
   this convention allows clients to discover a list of named
   instances of that desired service, using standard DNS queries. The
   service described in this document is referred to as DNS-based
   Service Discovery, or DNS-SD.
 
Working Group Summary
