thanks for the link, kingsley. I played with it with my foaf file

http://www.ivan-herman.net/foaf.rdf

I am not sure I fully understood everything that was happening (eg, if I
say order by 'knows' and then say 'group', I get an empty page saying
'false'; I also do not fully understand why certain person I know appear
under the 'knows' filter and certain do not...). I presume this is still
project-in-the-making...

But that goes beyond sweo for now.

I also use Chris' Bizer Dolce sometimes. That is also a nice one.
