To: "SWD WG" <public-swd-wg@w3.org>

This is a minor issue (hopefully), but the SKOS Core guide section
entitled "Multilingual Labeling [1] states that...

"The values permissible as language tags are given by [XMLLANG]."

and ..

"[XMLLANG]  IETF (Internet Engineering Task Force). RFC 3066: Tags for
the Identification of Languages, ed. H. Alvestrand. 2001."

RFC3066 [2] has been made obsolete by RFC4646 [3], as discussed in
"Language tags in HTML and XML" [4].
