Re: [xml-dev] XML vocabulary for expressing constraints?

Hi Liam,

Please explain this too me. I've been thinking that an address can have either semantic meaning, as in an RDF triple, or identify a resource, a representation of which might ideally contain links to semantic information (such as using RDFa) charaterising the content. An inside looking out vs an outside looking in (via topic maps) contrast I guess is your point?

I don't believe that "HTTP Range" cuts it, as putting # on the end of a
URI is not out-of-band, and still only gives two options (the resource
itself or the resource as a surrogate).

At one time I hoped topic maps would give us more of this.
