Our Indo-European ancestors (or antecessors), those of us who have them, anyhow. Adjectives are just a variant of nouns.

There is a very nice mapping from media types to URIs: prepend "http://www.iana.org/assignments/media-types/" to the media type. One can do similar things for language tags, port numbers, protocol types, etc. -- Henry S. Thompson said, / "Syntactic, structural, John Cowan Value constraints we / Express on the fly." jcowan@r...
