Thanks, Carole.

Bon Voyage!

For the uninitiated, here is a PPT presentation Ben gave on the Boca  
Enterprise-ready RDF Server at the SWTech meeting held in Edinburgh  
in June:
	http://www.nesc.ac.uk/action/esi/contribution.cfm?Title=683 (Day 1,  
Session 2, presentation 1)

I'd also recommend Daniele's presentation on LSID's in Taverna
	http://www.nesc.ac.uk/action/esi/contribution.cfm?Title=683 (Day 3,  
Session 2, presentation 2)

Cheers,
Bill
