Not scare quotes -- it is italicized for emphasis. ;-)

Hmmm -- that one is a personal habit.  The internet is now a utility, so I don't capitalize it anymore.  I'll capitalize it in the report.

Good point; I'm convinced, and I've added it back.

I couldn't find it either; I had to go to Wikipedia [1] to find a meaningful expansion of RDFa.  In reading the passage with the eye of someone who may not have heard of RDFa, I thought it necessary to try to expand the acronym in a way that would distinguish it from straight RDF.  I can be convinced to do otherwise, though...
