Here are my small comments, mostly editorial.



General comment:
- In the code examples, it would be really nice to emphasize (bold?) the 
RDFa elements (that is, the xhtml tags and attributes) that are 
introduced and explained by the current section (property, content, 
rel,...), for pedagogical purposes

Specific comments
"Note how the about attribute is inherited down the DOM tree hierarchy: 
the nearest ancestor with a declared about applies to declared 
structured data."
The end of the sentence is a little bit difficult to understand, I think.

On abbreviation (removing the span) [perhaps this is not only editorial!]
" The span element is actually not required. One can easily add the RDFa 
attributes to existing HTML elements, without adding a span:"
-> Isn't it only possible when values of abbreviated triples do not have 
the same value? (e.g. same dc:creator and dc:publisher)

problem of literal and individual-ranged property
The value of a dc:creator can be a literal or an individual, therefore 
this property can appear as value of both "rel" and "property" 
attributes. This seems not problematic but should be acknowledged, not 
to make the reader wondering wether this is a bug or a feature.

"The result of such syntax is an RDF bnode, an advanced topic which we 
skip in this Primer."
-> and yet it is mentioned in 5.4
