While reading through the RDFa 1.1 Primer published at
http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml-rdfa-primer/, I noticed that the note in
section 2.2.4 "Alternative for setting the property: rel" contains the
following sentence:

"In general, it is a good advise to stay with property, when possible."

This is grammatically incorrect. "stay with" is a bit of a
colloquialism, as well, whereas "use" is clear and direct. If changing
as little as possible in the existing text is a goal, I suggest either:

"In general, it is good advice to use property, when possible."


"In general, it is advised to use property, when possible."
