Although you haven't heard from me for a while, I have been working hard at
figuring out the RDFa specifications well enough to be able to write
intellegently about them. After a week of diligently studying the RDFa
Candidate Recommendation documents (which followed a month of studying the
old documents, before I contacted the list), I believe I have a pretty good
handle on the core of the core specification: the processing algorithm. I
have been able to reduce the process down to two decision tables and a few
very easy to understand steps. I am almost ready to sit down and start
writing that book. Currently, I am fleshing out the outline and deciding
what order to explain various topics based upon what concepts an average
web-site designer may or may not already understand. Soon, I will sit down
and comb through the documentation compiling a list of terms and phrases
which I feel deserve accurate definitions or explanations. This is kind of a
parallel process, so bear with me. 

Tonight, however, I will be combing through my .PDF version of the RDFa Core
1.1 Candidate Recommendation document, digging out the various questions I
have not been able to answer by myself. Many may seem relatively minor, but
I still need to understand them and I cannot find the answers by cross
referencing between all the other documents. These questions will come in
separate e-mails for easier tracking and later reference.

Thank you for your support.
Grant
