Sorry to be a little unsure of the final outcome.
So the decision is text/n3 and text/turtle?
And we should be serving with type text/turtle for
http://southampton.rkbexplorer.com/models/void.ttl
But could also serve the same file (with type text/turtle?) in response to a
content request for text/n3 (since it is compatible) and possibly some other
things.
Best
Hugh
(Hoping he can be told, so he doesn't have to read and try to understand all
the specs!)
