> The xs:string datatype is a datatype defined in XML Schema Datatypes [XML Schema Datatypes] as having the value space equal to the set of all strings. Thus, the value space of xs:string is not a subset of the value space of rdf:text, which may cause problems for certain applications of this specification. A similar problem arises with XML Schema datatypes that are derived from xs:string.
