Dear Mike,

thank you again for your efforts. Meanwhile, we have addressed your  
comments (and responded to them mainly by editor's notes).

The diff

http://www.w3.org/2007/OWL/wiki/index.php?title=Primer&diff=23543&oldid=23518

contains the editorial changes made to Sections 1 - 8.

Some more comments on Sections 9 and 10:

We have rewritten this section and we think it's much clearer now.

Diff for Section 9: <http://www.w3.org/2007/OWL/wiki/index.php?title=Primer&diff=23689&oldid=23628

Note, however, that applying the RDF based semantics to an OWL 2 DL
ontology does not amount to exactly the same as applying the direct
semantics - we have also added a remark on this.

We have done this, i.e. we have taken out the respective parts.

Okay and done.

Diff for Section 10: <http://www.w3.org/2007/OWL/wiki/index.php?title=Primer&diff=23695&oldid=23689

Best regards
