Thanks a million Gannon.   Just goes to show you power of RDF ... we published it, you fixed it :-)  Your gift is gratefully accepted.  Will advise when incorporated asap.  I like what you added, thank you again.  

Cheers,

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").
