I note your site uses the cacert server cert (that Mozilla Foundation
refuses to trust.

Can you make a variant of the service in which one does a GET of the form:
"https://axolotlfarm.org/rdfatranslator.php?url=https://foaf.me/peter34#me"
and it outputs the RDFa.

My webid validator could then use the URI (above) as the FROM clause of the
query I give to uriburner. We can see what happens.

OF course, this means Im relying on your service to ajudge whether foaf.me
server cert is good or not (since its expired).  I also rely on uriburner,
to judge whether or not it accepts your cacert-issued server cert.

Now, we are starting to build an ecosystem of related services - some which
translate formats, some which validated webids, some which assert reliance
models on server certs, some which check expiry dates (or not)...

We can start to get passed the trivial X.509 cert and https use cases, that
folks delivered in 20 products, globally, a decade ago.

I have created a .htaccess file according to this howto. Now I was looking
for a nice and generic way to create the RDFa output. Finally here is my
solution: "lightweight RDF query" [1]. If you want to see a live demo, just
have a look at my webid [2].
