Re: Request for OWL 2 vocabulary file

I would like to second Holger's request. I find that it is easiest to
approach new vocabularies by simply having its rdf description. I have
hunted the owl 2 site clicking on anything that might lead to one, only to
be disappointed with more machine-unfriendly html.

Is there a OWL 2 vocab spec in non RDF/XML RDF?

Regards,
Tim Lebo
