   RE: [xml-dev] About OWL syntax

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Hi Thomas,

Thomas said:
Remember that any OWL statement is also a valid RDF statement. 
Therefore you can serialize it any way you like that conforms with the 
RDF serialization Rec.  You are not limited to the form of those examples.

Didier replies:
Does it mean that I can serialize a valid OWL statement as below?
owl:Class rdf:ID="ConsumableThing">
   <owl:ObjectProperty rdf:ID="madeFromFruit">
      <rdfs:range rdf:resource="#Fruit" /> 
   .... other property definition ....

Would that statement still a valid OWL document as specified in the
recommendation? If yes, this could be suggested as a good practice.

I was convinced that the syntax as illustrated in the example was
constrained by RDFS and that RDFS considers properties and classes as
disjoint elements. So, can I make the inference that RDFS class elements can
also contain property elements?
