No problem.

As defined in the URI spec, we send only the URI http://example.com/resources
(of course using content-negotiation). So if we are a browser, we get back HTML,
scroll down to "#Bob", if defined, done.
If  we  are a semantic web agent, we Accept: application/rdf+xml and get back an
RDF/XML  file.  We  parse  it an look up statements about bob. We can ignore all
other statements which are not directly or indirectly connected to bob.

Kind Regards,
Max
