I don't think that actually changes my example in any substantial way save humor, however. You appear to be claiming that RDF is all about adjectives while REST is about nouns and verbs, and I'm left wondering who had the brilliant idea of making all adjectives out of nouns. I can't say that I'm sold on the notion of using URIs as adjectives in any event. For my own work, other identifiers (mostly defined in MIME) seem more appropriate, not to mention more concise and more human-readable. -- Simon St.Laurent Ring around the content, a pocket full of brackets Errors, errors, all fall down! http://simonstl.com -- http://monasticxml.org
