To support the simplified RDF syntax and mapping of colloquial XML to RDF
(http://www.openhealth.org/RDF/rdf_Syntax_and_Names.htm) I have used Dan
Connolly's rdfp.xsl as a base. This is useful to see how 'arbitrary' or
'colloquial' XML maps to a set of RDF triples, it also demonstrates how
current RDF XML serializations map to a set of RDF triples.
The XSLT is available at http://www.openhealth.org/RDF/rdfp.xsl
This mapping effects edge labelling of XML graphs and uses XPointer
generation to create URIs for XML/RDF nodes. Note that 2 forms of xpointer
generation are switched by a param, the default uses attribute values to
identify an element.
A number of examples have been scrapped from the M&S and are available in
http://www.openhealth.org/RDF/ see test5.xml -> result5.xml (actually there
are about 14 pairs).
What it doesn't yet support:
Many I'm sure! This is a work in progress.
In developing the mapping, I've noticed an errata in the M&S, specifically
"and using this third abbreviated form as:
Note that <s:Person about="..."> needs to be changed to
<s:Person rdf:about="..."> under most any reasonable interpretation of
defaulting namespaces for attributes (my preference is strongly that *all*
rdf attributes be explicitly placed in the rdf NS).
