well that didn't work - here's a try with a different setting

I'm trying to fix my mail app for quoting as per Kendall's request

having to put this in everyone's group mail, but I'll try to minimize 
and I've tagged it [mail app fix] so that everyone but me (and maybe 
Kendall) can ignore it.

and do it on purely theoretical grounds - all we'll end up with 
another travesty like OWL Lite



Does this look better?


Jim,

1. Can you fix yr mail app so that it quotes other people's text 
properly? I'm interested in following this conversation, but it's 
kinda hard when all the voices blur together.


this is a comment from Hendler inlined



2. For my money (uh, literally!), DL-Lite and EL++ (and RDFS, in a 
different way) are already strongly and explicitly motivated by real 
world considerations. (And, FWIW, the existing TF doc *does*, inline, 
offer some 'real world' motivations for, say, EL++ and DL-Lite. These 
can be strengthened and should be.)


Here is a comment with a paste from kendall

back to Jim's comments


My new company is interested in the TF stuff specifically so that we 
can build a product around it, and take that product into the federal 
market. Perhaps playing the Expressivity Game against Oracle and IBM 
is a losing battle, but we don't know that (yet), and having a 
standards doc will help make that market, if it's going to be made at 
all.

a quote from a web page

A Converter to RDF is a tool which converts application data from an 
application-specific format into RDF for use with RDF tools and 
integration with other data.Converters may be part of a one-time 
migration effort, or part of a running system which provides a 
semantic web view of a given application. See also: ConverterFromRdf

so we'll see if that is better

Again, apologies for wasting W3C resource, but since Kendall asked on 
this list, I figured it was best place to try to fix it.
