Good point.  What I was sort of driving at (and failing) was the context
in which the facts are mentioned---are they the aim of the paper,
background information, mentioned as results and so forth?

Currently in our (Project Prospect) RSS feeds we connect the OBO terms
to the article with the content module of RSS, which I feel is
unsatisfactory.

Best wishes,
Colin.
