Re: Assumptions about URIs
Bent Rasmussen scripsit: > - "Does the URI 'http://www.w3.org' identify an > organisation called W3C or a location on the Web?" For informal purposes, it can refer to either, just as informally I can be called either "John Cowan" or "mailto:cowan@c...". For RDF/TM purposes, when it is necessary to make rigorous distinctions, then there are two possible answers: - A URI means what the owner of the authority-part (DNS name) says it means. On this basis, "John Cowan" is a non-URI name of *me*, whereas "mailto:cowan@c..." is a URI name of *one of my mailboxes*. - The meaning of a URI must be inferred from the statements made about it. In this case we would have to look to what has been said. -- John Cowan http://www.ccil.org/~cowan cowan@c... To say that Bilbo's breath was taken away is no description at all. There are no words left to express his staggerment, since Men changed the language that they learned of elves in the days when all the world was wonderful. --_The Hobbit_
