I'm responsible for the development of the UK Government's "official legislation website" - and also for official Gazettes  on the web (the London, Belfast and Edinburgh Gazettes).

See: http://www.opsi.gov.uk/acts/acts2008/ukpga_20080003_en_1 for an example of how we publish legislation (it is semantic HTML and we use a bit of GRDDL too). We've published our XML Schema here: http://www.opsi.gov.uk/legislation/schema/

We're really keen to share ideas!

I've cc'ed some of the others involved.

Subject: Legislation on the web...

Dear egov-ig group members,

Is there anyone else that is involved in a project that aims to put
your national legislation on the web? We are currently half way
through a project where we use a lot of W3C standards/technology (e.g.
RDFa, OWL, RDFS, XHTML et al) to put swedish legislation online in a
better shape than what exists today.

I was thinking that projects of this type would be similar (from a
technology perspective) in many countries and it would be interesting
to share ideas.

Kind regards,

Peter Krantz
