I think I'm going to discuss RDF but not march right into it for the
example itself. I'm not a 'believer' (sorry, guys) and I suspect the
attributes/elements/whatever-they're-just-properties is a bit too
cutting-edge for the extremely simple application I'm producing here.
To be honest, I think RDF needs a book (or several) of its own, and I don't
think I'm the one to write it.
