Hello all,

Please see details of an event in Edinburgh, Scotland where we are gathering people from various sectors to discuss web 2 issues


We would welcome anyone from UK who might be interested to attend

There is a National Archives of Scotland in Edinburgh - I do not know if they have a separate policy on this ?

 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/
 You might also be interested in "Sem Webbing the London Gazette"
 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
