   Syntax vs semantics

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Once again, I am confused.  I like the nice, clean distinction offered by another list member- XSD for syntax, RDF and its related standards for semantics.  But then there are things like element substitution and, effectively, subclassing, in XSD that strike me as much too closely resembling semantics.  Seems to me those kind of things should be handled via RDFS/OWL, not XSD.

I am in the throes of developing my first real ontology- any advice on this?  Is it simply a question of what validation mechanisms you have handy?  I hope not.
