The OWL guide is probably as good a place as any. The rough idea is that  
it is RDF, but in particular it specifies some things like equivalentClass  
and Restriction so that you can do some simple logic in RDF, using a  
reasoner like Pellet.

Or you could start from the example that Shadi wrote which I think got the  
syntax right to demonstrate how you would solve our particular problem in  
OWL: http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/w3c-wai-er-ig/2004Sep/0001.html
