A definition of non-abelian genus zero open Wilson surfaces is proposed. The ambiguity in surface-ordering is compensated by the gauge transformations.

After submitting the original version of this paper to hep-th, the work [5] was brought to our attention. In [5] an equation similar to eq. (2.13) was taken as a definition of Wilson surface. The case considered in [5] corresponds, in our notation, to the C-independent M[C]. The surface-ordering ambiguities are absent in this case. For a list of miscellaneous work on non-abelian 2-form theories, see [6].
