Are you kidding?

Are you kidding? in the world ??? Did you miss the part where the OP states that he wrote this article for the beginner to begin to grasp these concepts as they relate to photography? And you want to nitpick the definition of DOF to that level? He's not writing an scientific optics textbook. Once again it is for the beginner to grasp the concept. And his definition does that just fine, in fact better than yours.

I tired to send you a personal email about this but it bounced. I'm sorry to say this in a public forum, but I have to say your text is doing more harm than good. It leaves out key information and is in contradiction with the images you have posted.

You start with an incorrect definition of DOF:

"DOF is therefore the area that is in focus in the image."

DOF isn't an area in the image; it's range of depths in the world that appear in focus in the image.

Things go downhill from there. You say that you are trying to make things simple for novices, but giving them incorrect and inconsistent information isn't helping them.
