agreed.

i've also been playing around with this type of code:


<earl:Assertion
rdf:about="http://vendor-a.org/tool/tests/#check-for-alt">
  <earl:subject rdf:resource="#subject"/>
  <earl:result rdf:parseType="Resource">
    <earl:validity
rdf:resource="http://www.w3.org/WAI/ER/EARL/nmg-strawman#pass"/>
    <earl:confidence
rdf:resource="http://www.w3.org/WAI/ER/EARL/nmg-strawman#low"/>
    <earl:message>ALT Tags Exist</earl:message>
  </earl:result>
  <earl:mode
rdf:resource="http://www.w3.org/WAI/ER/EARL/nmg-strawman#automatic"/> 
  <earl:testcase
rdf:resource="http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG10/#tech-text-equivalent"/>
  <earl:assertedBy rdf:resource="#assertor"/>
</earl:Assertion>


...which makes aggregation very comfortable but kind of turns EARL
inside out (as i understand the current spec).

to me it makes sense as an assertion is really about the specific test
which the tool conducts, the earl:testcase should be optional if this
test really maps to a test suite. comments welcome...

Works for me.

Although I'm not sure about the use of the "rdf:about" and
"rdf:resource"
attributes. Should these both be "rdf:resource" attributes?

Charles - Any comments?
