   <rdf:Description rdf:about="#Jenny">
      <ex:age>10</ex:age>
   </rdf:Description>

   <rdf:Description rdf:about="&ex;age">

   <rdf:Description rdf:about="#Bob">
      <ex:age xsd:integer="10"/>
   </rdf:Description>

or

   <rdf:Description rdf:about="#Bob">
      <ex:age>
         <rdf:Description>
           <xsd:integer>10</xsd:integer>
         </rdf:Description>
      </ex:age>
   </rdf:Description>

RDF/XML does not presently support literals as subjects in the
serialization. I could suggest options, but will refrain.

Cheers,
