Dear list,
What are the best practice to include a set of RDF triples in HTML.
*Please note*: I am not looking for the RDFa way to include triples. I 
just want to add a set of triples somewhere in an HTML document. They 
are not supposed to show up like "Wikinomics", "Don Tapscott" in  the 
following example:

<div  xmlns:dc="http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/"
   about="http://www.example.com/books/wikinomics">
   <span  property="dc:title">Wikinomics</span>
   <span  property="dc:creator">Don Tapscott</span>
   <span  property="dc:date">2006-10-01</span>
</div>

I don't want to use the strings in the HTML document as objects in the 
triples. My use case is that I just have a large set of triples, e.g. 
1000 that I want to include as a bulk somewhere and ship along with the 
html. Which way is the best? Do the examples below work?
All the best,
Sebastian
