Or, you could argue that RDF-Schema simply defines a different kind of structure -- instead of saying what elements may contain, it says what classes properties may appear in. It's the same thing, then, but in a more specific problem domain (the object world). That said, I'm a big RDF-Schema fan -- it's quite readable, and I'm finding some serious interest in both RDF and RDF-Schema out there in the business world. I'd very much like to see RDF-Schema go to REC, even though it's missing some things I think I need. > Or do I got something completely wrong. > > Or is XML-DEV not the right place to argue in favor of RDF/RDFS? This is the best place. There's also an rdf-dev list, but nobody posts to it. All the best, David -- David Megginson david@m... http://www.megginson.com/ xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers.
