Boris,
Those are a couple of incredibly useful links for me. Thank you!
Especially your own link!
I haven't had time to go through it yet, but I think I will find your paper
very useful, basically essential to what I am trying to understand.

However, if you have a moment, can you say in one or two sentences the
relationship between your approach and google refine, which I belief can
lift XML, and TopBraid, which does lift XML, but, from my experiments,
requires post processing probably with SPIN, if I understand correctly my
own results. I should just add that SPIN seemed like a solution too bound to
the tool to be of interest to me, and also represented further knowledge
absorption on my part.

As I say comments welcome.


Adam
