In the example I posted, the URL is not used as an identifier for the
person. The URL is the *object* of the rnews:homepage triple. (I don't
know if rnews has a homepage property - if not, substitute foaf:page,
rdfs:seeAlso, etc.)

<p rel="rnews:creator">
  This picture was taken by
  <a target="_blank" typeof="rnews:Person"
     rel="rnews:homepage" href="http://www.riecks.com/"
     property="rnews:name">David Riecks</a>.  
</p>

That should be equivalent to this Turtle:

<whatever-the-subject-is>
	rnews:creator [
		a rnews:Person ;
		rnews:name "David Riecks" ;
		rnews:homepage >
		] .
