   RE: [xml-dev] RDF and the new releases

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Possibly so. Still, even though they work, 
I think it is the use of URIs in RDF 
that make it difficult to read or 
grasp initially.  The idea of URL as locator 
is pretty firmly locked in the noodles 
of a lot of developers.  Abstractly, 
we know it ain't so, but the eye sees 
the http: and tells the brain otherwise. 
Cognitive dissonance.

I believe the source of the confusion is
that people expect the structure of an XML-RDF document to reflect the
structure of the underlying graph ... but very often it doesn't.
