Hi,

thanks for the feedback.  On GRDDL, there are two separate issues, hOCR and
hBIB.

I don't see any use case yet for transforming hOCR to GRDDL, and I'm not
even sure how to do it. One of the main features of hOCR is that we rely on
HTML for all the tricky parts of representing text; without the HTML
portion, hOCR is just geometry.

For hBIB, yes, there are BibTeX RDF vocabularies.  I think that's going to
be covered by the combination of hbib2bibtex (which will be one of the
hbib-tools) and bibtex2rdf.  Do you see any functionality not covered by
that?

I can guess at some use cases for that, but are there actually significant
real-world uses? Also, how would RDF deal with the typographic issues
involved in communicating bibliographies?  Typography can make a big
difference in the meaning of some bibliographic entries, in particular in
mathematics, chemistry, and biology (less so in computer science).  In order
to communicate these correctly,

Tom
