   Mini-review of Tim Bray's RPV syntax for RDF

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

This is mostly a remapping of a small subset of standard RDF/XML.  It has
the following features that RDF/XML has not:

1) Expresses property names as URIs rather than QNames

2) String-valued property can have the string stored remotely, reachable by URL

3) Incorporates xml:base

4) Provides separate base attributes for resources, properties, and values

"The exception proves the rule."  Dimbulbs think: "Your counterexample proves
my theory."  Latin students think "'Probat' means 'tests': the exception puts
the rule to the proof."  But legal historians know it means "Evidence for an
exception is evidence of the existence of a rule in cases not excepted from."
