Assume I am just writing HTML by hand. I don't need a tool to discover and
annotate entities for me, I am just wondering about the syntax for myself.

As far as I know (and I checked the standards, but maybe I missed it),
there is no 'about' attribute in HTML, my example was faked up. How would
that look like correctly?

Cheers,
Denny
