RE: Services-based automation (WAS RE: Realistic proposals to the W3C?)
That is true but only because a human is trained to get that information from the structure. To the machine, H1 just means "Make it bigger, bolder, and stuff a line break or two in there unless instructed otherwise by a separate set of instructions." What the RDF might bring to the party is a means to train the machine a bit better, so in effect, a separate set of instructions. As Joe said, it comes down to pattern recognition. Humans do it extremely well and that combined with an opposable thumb and speech gave us top branch on the monkey tree. What services can pattern recognition provide?

Passin [mailto:tpassin@h...] Actually, there can be more than meets the eye at first. With human-to-human communication, structure can provide quite a lot of meaning. Just change the indentation of a list or the order of parts of a sentence and you can easily change the meaning, for example. Labeling a part with <h2> brings some intention or hint or context along with it.
