Ok, I tried to take a look.

First, I'm not on the RIF wiki, so I can't get at the wiki code.

Second, it seems fairly complicated. Right now, I'd just like to  
convert my extant table about anonymous individuals into test cases:

	http://www.w3.org/2007/OWL/wiki/Anonymous_Individuals

They are entailment tests with a couple of non-entailments.

In the interest of moving forward, I decided to just grab the last  
thing that made sense to me:
	http://www.w3.org/2007/OWL/wiki/index.php?title=Template:TestCase
	http://www.w3.org/2007/OWL/wiki/index.php?title=Test_Case_Experiment

There's a lot of YANGI[1] in this (e.g., multiple inputs syntaxes).  
So I just ignored that for the moment.

Here's a test case:
	http://www.w3.org/2007/OWL/wiki/BnodeTest1_1
I linked to it from this page:
	http://www.w3.org/2007/OWL/wiki/Anonymous_Individuals

Which seems a tad nice, I guess.

Writing test cases really really sucks, by the by. I strongly request  
of the chairs that we do something to move this forward. Test cases  
written in a crunch at the end are going to be painful to do and hard  
to validate. I suggest that we actually put some people in charge of  
doing this.

I am not one of those people!

Cheers,
Bijan.
