In the euler implemention we have been experimenting with
{ :a . :b . :c } a math:Set .

It works, but we haven't much experience yet :)

        Subject:        Notation for sets in n3

Recently, it was decided that Cwm should have support for sets.

This leads to the question, what delimeter should a set have in n3? The
problem is n3 already use every ascii delimeter I can think of.
(...) is taken for lists
{...} is taken for formulae
[...] is taken for anonymous nodes
<...> is taken for resources

My father suggested ..., but being as that cannot be typed on a
standard keyboard, is unlikely to be useful.

My personal opinion is something like {|...|} would be best. Something
like $(...) might also work. It seems no matter what we do, readability
is compromised.
