Hello Stephan,

Thanks. I've included the XML examples to the primer [1]. Could you check I've not made an obvious mistake anywhere?

I notice there is a disrepancy in the way plans are encoded in the different formats.

The PROV-O example says:
  ex:instructions a prov:Plan .
The equivalent PROV-N example includes:
  entity(ex:instructions)
Currently the XML does not declare the plan, just refer to it. Should the XML example include the following?
  <entity prov:id="instructions"/>
or something else? Or is there an explanation of the discrepancy we can include in the primer?

thanks,
Simon

I have filled out the initial prov-xml examples in the following file.

http://dvcs.w3.org/hg/prov/raw-file/66b8e83713ec/primer/primer-prov-xml-examples.xml

It should be content complete, but does not validate right now because of the foaf and dct namespaces that I do not have a DTD reference for.
