Re: XSchema Question 1: RDF

HyTime is another system for describing relationships between resources, and could thus be used to attach properties to resources. But because it uses architectural forms, authors don't need to know anything about HyTime to use it. Only document type designers must know about it. The XML world has so few document types that hardly anybody worries about this problem yet. But they will... What we have here is a perfect example. We want to make a language that is optimized for our user community. We want that language to also be an RDF application. Those two goals seem to be in conflict, because RDF seems to require you to embed RDF specific elements into any document that uses RDF. We would rather have the document use RDF indirectly through some sort of transformation specified by the small set of experts in this mailing list. Instead of: <RDF:Description RDF:HREF="IMG-ELEMENT"> <XSC:ContentModel>...</XSC:ContentModel> <XSC:Attributes>...</XSC:Attributes> </RDF:Description> we want: <XSC:ELETYPE NAME="IMG"> <XSC:ContentModel>...</XSC:ContentModel> <XSC:Attributes>...</XSC:Attributes> </XSC:ELETYPE> I could imagine that being handled by a RDF:role attribute that could be defaulted in the DTD, by RDF:Role processing instructions, through a reference to some kind of transformation language, etc. How do the RDPhiles intend for this situation to be handled in general?
