Thanks Ben! (Apologies for the prematurely sent reply.)

I've seen plenty of examples that use the existing PCDATA, but for the
purposes of the PRISM group, I wanted to make sure I properly understood
how to add metadata that is particularly "meta" to a document, e.g.
workflow tracking information that is not part of the content. They're
going to like this. 
It's really going to just be 3 or 4 slides at the end of a presentation
on XHTML 2 aimed at people who've never heard of RDF/A, so there won't
be anything interesting to people who already know much about it. 
Congratulations on the WD status of the Primer!

Yes, these are working examples of RDF/A.

Note that you might want to consider examples where you're reusing the
data within the HTML page, for example:

This page, entitled
<span about="" property="dc:title">Meta-metadata</span>,
was written by 
<span about="" property="dc:creator">Bob DuCharme</span>.

I'm not sure if one of us can make it to NYC on 3/20, but we'll keep you

Please do send us your slides or other material if you present something
on RDF/A (assuming the presentation isn't confidential, of course)!

is more of an rdf-in-xhtml issue, so I'll try here. 
To add metadata to an XHTML 2 document without adding PCDATA, the
following seems OK to me according to RDF/A documentation, but I wanted
to double-check with others. Assuming that the dc namespace prefix has
been properly declared, are these kosher RDF/A?
  <meta about="http://www.snee.com/bobdc.blog/2006/01/metametadata.html"
                 property="dc:creator" content="Bob DuCharme"/>
 <div about="http://www.snee.com/bobdc.blog/2006/01/metametadata.html">
    <meta property="dc:creator" content="Bob DuCharme"/>
    <meta property="dc:title" content="Meta-metadata"/>
    <meta property="dc:date" content="2006-01-20"/>
    <meta property="dc:subject" content="metadata"/>
    <meta property="dc:subject" content="Data Model Comparison Table"/>
If anyone who will be in New York City on 3/20 is interested in a
promotional opportunity for RDF/A, I'll be giving a talk to the PRISM
group (see
_06.asp) about new opportunities that XHTML 2 presents for storing
structure and metadata. The people at Time Inc. are particularly
interested, and while I certainly plan to discuss RDF/A a bit, if anyone
would like to join me and do a few slides themselves, I'd be happy to
have them.
