Reading Danny Ayers blog entry [1] on "So I have a FOAF... now what? " 
I thought it might be nice to "reuse" the already existing FOAF files 
out there.

So, now here is the result - a (very simple) FOAF/RDF to 
FOAF/RDFa converter [2].  You just point it to a FOAF document 
and it generates a HTML document containing (some of) the FOAF ready
to use in a Web page.

A static snapshot of a so generated page -
based on an adjustable template - is available at [3].

What I did not figure out yet is, why a dynamic generated 
RDFa document can't be converted back on the fly, viz. [4]
does _not_ work, while the 'static' version [5] works just fine ... 
and yes: I also tried it with other RDFa extractors :)

Cheers,
	Michael

Please Note: The FOAFr is _very_ alpha, not much tested,
and comments on extensions, problems, etc. are very welcome ;)
