I implemented the ISSUE-71 resolution.

Before the change (but post ISSUE-12), literals were either “typed literals” or “language-tagged literals”.

Now they are all simply “literals”. Those with the datatype IRI rdf:langString are special and have a language tag besides the lexical form and datatype IRI.

The text that makes it happen is in these sections:


A full diff is here (the diff tool is a bit crappy, if anyone knows a good one please share):

As per Jeremy's amendment to the ISSUE-71 resolution, I assigned an ACTION to the RDF Semantics editor:

Modify RDF Semantics appropriately to hard-code the class extension of rdf:langString to the set of all pairs of strings and language tags.

This completes ACTION-97.
