Antoine,
Not sure exactly that you mean by "that kind of things". BS 8723-4 is
packed with advice about when and how to build mappings between concepts
in different vocabularies, from an intellectual point of view, rather
than a technology viewpoint. In a way it is all simple stuff, but you
don't find it collected anywhere else, and it is not always easy to
articulate. Publication expected autumn 2007.
cheers
Stella
