I guess RDF/XML would be suitable for bridging XML and RDF.
There is one ways to have consistent RDF/XML rendering

 <rdf:Description rdf:about="#entry00002">
  <rdf:type rdf:resource="http://data-gov.tw.rpi.edu/2009/data-gov-twc.rdf#DataEntry"/>

  <region>Southern California</region>

 <rdf:Description rdf:about="#entry00003">
  <rdf:type rdf:resource="http://data-gov.tw.rpi.edu/2009/data-gov-twc.rdf#DataEntry"/>
  <datetime>Monday, October 26, 2009 04:31:14 UTC</datetime>
