Hi all,

The contents of the Community Directory are already available in RDF.  There is a "Download the bulk RDF" link on the front page that leads to:
  http://dir.w3.org/directory.rdf

That RDF is dynamically queried when the URL is resolved and is always up to date.

Apologies if others have already pointed this out.  Gannon's message was caught in my spam trap.

Regards,
Dave

I did make one hard wired adjustment to the XHTML Schema and that was a fixed "target" attribute which makes all links open in a new window ... tabbed browsing was not available at the time the spec was finalized.  I validated with Xerces and XSLT'ed with Saxon.  All the source files are available here[7].

The LCSH supplies broader terms. 3) A link to the narrowest available LOC Vocabulary Encoding, which you can follow up to the LCSH 4) Leftovers (the LOC has a lot of work to do), down to the narrowest Subdivision defined by UN LOCODES (who also have a lot of work to do, and needs a better definition of "peer").
