Hi all,

Sorry about the word 'gettable' in the comment for skos:symbol, it's not even proper English I don't think.  

How about if we substitute 'retrievable' for 'gettable', so the comment reads:

'This property is roughly analogous to rdfs:label, but for labelling resources with images that have retrievable representations.'

How's that?

Thanks,

Al.
