In the Web if talking about something we must have an address for it.

URI identifies a resource (which is related to an Object), of which representation represents (stands for) this Object. The representation of the Object in the Web is the Web page that contains information about the object.

The meta-data of it is the representation in HTML.

A browser translates this HTML format into a representation that is readable by humans.
