2. RDFa Primer, 3rd revision

Status section should be changed to reflect new 
situation (SWD).

A "Changes" section is missing, please add.


Sec. 2:

The iCal and VCard examples would benefit from 
some (nonformal,
textual) explanation of what they contain.

[[
   Note how the about attribute is inherited down 
the DOM tree hierarchy:
]]
You assume the reader knows about how the DOM 
hierarchy works. Either
make this clear in the "Intended audience" section 
or mark this as a
note for a particular reader subset.

Typo: "Simple enough!,"

Sec. 2.6: suggestion to include a short discussion 
about the resulting
triple set, e.g. the talk is not linked to Jo Smith.


Sec. 3:

When you introduce resp literal and URI 
properties, refer back to
Sec. 2 to indicate how this distinction becomes 
apparent there.

[[
   An RDFa-aware browser would thus extract the 
following RDF triples:
]]

Why didn't you add similar example triples in Sec. 
2? Given what you
stated about required knowledge of RDF I would 
suggest to explain the "<>"
notation.

[[
   (The ^^XMLLiteral notation, which denotes a 
datatype, will be
   explained shortly.)
]]

XMLLiteral was already used in Sec. 2.6, so move 
this remark to 2.6.


Sec. 4:

About the editorial note: I don't really see the 
repetition. I
actually like this treatment of "advanced" RDFa 
features.


Sec. 5:

Make clear whether this section is a required 
read. I would suggest
not. Is it correct to say that this section mainly 
adds info about how
to handle blank nodes? If so, please make this 
explicit.
