As I said it is probably a cultural question. I won't name the
information on my national ID card 'content' (rather property or
attribute), but I would name the frontpage of the local news paper
'content'. But I am foreign to English. Just note that others might have
similar perceptions about the word 'content'. I am not against using
this word, nor do I have something better to suggest, so I am not really
bringing the discussion further myself... I just would not call the
group of properties in my user profile 'content'...
