Michael,

I think the latest version is in:

Horst, Herman J. ter. “Completeness, decidability and complexity of 
entailment for RDF Schema and a semantic extension involving the OWL 
vocabulary.” Journal of Web Semantics 3 (2005): 79-115.

I hope you can read it; if not, I have a copy of the PDF file on my machine.

P.S. And to avoid misunderstandings (it happened in the past): my 
_family_ name is 'Herman', and this guy's _surname_ is 'Herman' (a 
common problem for me here in the Netherlands...). No family or other 
relations...:-)
