Would it be possible to post a list of need to know links for these to the list? Links to the WDs and relevant mailing lists would be great... Thanks, ---- sure: 1) RDF Semantics http://www.w3.org/TR/rdf-mt/ I think this is a very well written document and surprisingly approachable for a "model theoretic semantics" -- contrast to the OWL Semantics which is far more technical In particular read 0.2 Graph syntax . http://www.w3.org/TR/rdf-mt/#graphsyntax and 1.2 Urirefs, resources and literals. http://www.w3.org/TR/rdf-mt/#urisandlit 2) RDF Concepts and Abstract Syntax http://www.w3.org/TR/rdf-concepts/ (I prefer the RDF Semantics myself). 3) OWL Guide -- http://www.w3.org/TR/owl-guide/ -- This is a good intro to ontologies (IMHO) 4) OWL Reference -- http://www.w3.org/TR/owl-ref/ 5) OWL Features -- http://www.w3.org/TR/owl-features/ -- a bit dated and soon to be updated 6) OWL Semantics -- http://www.w3.org/TR/owl-semantics/ -- a bit technical, defines the abstract syntax (productions) for a non-RDF OWL language that may be transformed into RDF/XML. A non-RDF XML Schema for OWL is in the works (soon to be published). I've left some out, but this is a good start. Jonathan
