If you want to have one file for the RDF 1.1 documents...

Having my hat of digital publishing on I played the past few months with a python package to turn W3C TR documents into epub; the advantage is really in the case of specifications that consist of several documents. RDF being one of the clear cases... So I created a bunch of eBooks binding some of the RDF (and other) documents together). See

http://www.w3.org/dpub/ebooks/

I was wondering whether it was useful to bind _all_ RDF documents into one epub, ie, concepts, semantics, all the various serializations, and possibly even SPARQL. It is perfectly possible to do (it is just massaging some configuration files) but I am not sure it is all that useful.

All you need is either an ebook reader that can manage epub (which is all except for Kindle), or the relevant chrome or firefox extension.

Cheers

P.S. Before anybody asks: the reason I have not done OWL is because the format of the OWL specs is different. I usually rely on respec generated documents, or xmlproc (which is the case for SPARQL; the xmlproc version is a bit shaky, though), but OWL 2 is none of the two, I would have to do quite a lot of things either manually, or build into my system just for that case...
