Hi all,
I suggest a couple of minor editorial changes (most just correct
upper/lower case issues or singular/plural), but another thing is that
I think OWL RL entailment checkers should take OWL 2 RL ontology
documents as inputs and not OWL 2 Full as currently stated in Section
2.2.1. All other species take their respective ontology documents
(e.g., OWL 2 QL takes OWL 2 QL ontologies) and the following sentences
about soundness and competeness seem to assume this also for OWL RL.
Am I wrong here and is that an editorial change?

Unfortunately, I don't have rights to change the wiki page :-) Markus
could you do the changes? Thanks a lot!

2.1.1 bottom: Note that: ... 2) ... OWL 2 *d*atatype map not "OWL 2
Datatype map"
2.2: paragraph after the itemize and also in the following paragraph:
"RDF-Based *S*emantics" not "RDF-Based semantics"
2.2.1: "An OWL 2 RL entailment checker is an OWL 2 entailment checker
that takes OWL 2 Full ontology documents as input. "
I believe it should take OWL 2 RL ontology documents as input (all
profiles take their respective formats).
same paragraph: first-order semantics, where ... first order theory...
I believe we should both times use a dash: first-order
3.1.2 "RDF-*B*ased semantics" not "RDF-based semantics" in Appendix -> in the Appendix (Appendix is a link to the appendix)
3.2: Functional Syntax -> functional*-style* syntax all lower case
(could we add a link/reference [OWL Specification])?
3.2.3: *S*yntax translation tests may provide multiple normative
syntactic forms.
3.2.3: First item in itemize: functional syntax -> functional-style syntax
3.2.4 below the first example: "RDF-*B*ased *S*emantics" not
"RDF-based semantics" and "Direct Semantics" not "direct semantics"
3.2.6: "that the test conforms" not "that the test*s* conforms"
3.4: At the chair's discretion -> At the chairs' discretion (to be
consistent with last item in the itemize and because there is not only
one chair)
