RE: [xml-dev] The Semantic Web: An Introduction

That would be my start.  Say one collects 
some set of information in XML document form, 
and this document is a resource (has a URI) 
or set of resources (XLinks as relationships 
or conceptual pointers) has assertions made 
about the resources.  

I am listening to the 
Ken North interview of Chen, Carlson et al for 
enlightenment in conceptual modeling.   We've 
discussed this in HumanML and we found that 
for example, UML, lead to the object-oriented 
implementation not exactly the conceptual 
model.  That may be our inexperience because 
as I understand it, a conceptual model could 
be used to unite these.  I don't know if that 
fixes the interoperation in the architecture. 
For example, should one consult the UML model 
to determine that the semantic of say the XML 
Schema categories and RDF classes overlap, 
are the same and that an XSLT process is 

GIGO systems are easy to build.

Agreed. It might be useful to be able to make assertions about arbitrary XML
Schema documents in an RDF-like way (in a seperate document) and then apply
them to XML instance documents.
