Requirements and user interfaces specifications are often seperated from each other and do not fit together. We integrate them in a newly defined requirements specification language (RSL). In particular, RSL allows explicit linking of requirements artefacts with elements of the user interface specification. Some of these elements are modality-independent, while others can be viewed as a prototype of the "look" of the user interface. This integration along the representation dimension is supposed to facilitate combined work on requirements and user interfaces along the process dimension as well.
