Maintaining Activity:  Semantic Web Activity[1]

List Purpose: RDFa[2] is a specification for attributes that can be used 
with XHTML to express structured machine-readable data within an XHTML 
document.  Like microformats, RDFa allows parts of the HTML content to be 
used both for rendering (to the human reader) and be part of the 
structured (machine-readable) data.  Unlike microformats, RDFa specifies 
only a syntax for including structured data and relies on 
independently-developed vocabularies (also called taxonomies or 
ontologies) to provide the specific terms for given data items.  RDFa 
permits these vocabularies to be freely mixed within a single XHTML 

Additional information may be found in the RDFa Syntax specification[2], 
the RDFa Primer[3], and the RDFa community wiki[4].
