Re: Dissillusioned about interoperability.

Seems quite >feasible; I've been telling my students that, to a certain extent, RDF merely involves making certain of the semantics that are implicit in any DTD explicit (and thereby computer-processable). As far as this is true, people do not need to author data in RDF XML, since they can transform into it. What is more important is that designers of a DTD should consider whether the DTD (and documentation) has everything in it to allow the document to be satisfactorily transformed into RDF XML if needed. And I suspect that this ultimately boils down to using well-known controlled vocabularies which have accepted names (formal public identifiers such as URNs) and also to using as specific element types as possible.
