We continue to develop the XSLT stylesheet which transforms NewsML 2
metadata to RDF.  The next version will:
 
-  Output the RDF in the N3 format rather than the N-triples format.
 
-  Handle at least some of the attributes and child elements which 
   can be used to make further statements about the metadata.  These 
   divide into a number of classes:
   a)  info about the concept: title, type, sameAs, childOf.
   b)  info about the triple: creator, created, confidence, 
       relevance, why.
   c)  grouping of concepts: bag.
   d)  specialised child elements: eg person, organization.
 
We've decided that the stylesheet will:
 
-  Not perform any validation.  XML-Schema-aware tools should be 
   used for this purpose.
 
-  Ignore proprietary extensions, be they attributes or child 
   elements, as there is no way for the stylesheet to know the 
   semantics of such extensions.
 
The stylesheet is available at:
