Annotea Protocol.

I'm developing an Annotea extension to my Snufkin Browser (which is
really Internet Explorer see http://jibbering.com/snufkin/ .) and it
seems that the examples at <URL:
http://www.w3.org/2001/Annotea/User/Protocol.html > do not work for me.

Using something based on Figure 2 (only the text and urls changed to real
ones.) I get this back from the server:

<!-- sessionId: 1003809554.109461 -->
<html><head><title>bad parameter: <r:RDF xmlns:r</title></head>
      <body><h1>bad parameter: <r:RDF xmlns:r</h1>
            <p>http://annotest.w3.org/annotations was unable to interpret
parameter <r:RDF xmlns:r: "http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#"

I notice that the current information returned on a query (which I have
working okay, although the display is ugly, and out of context.) is also
different to that document.  My reading of RDF Schema's isn't all that
good, so I'd appreciate a more discussion/example based advice if that's

Also, if there are any DOM-Xpointer (and XPointer-DOM) implementations
about they'd be useful, rather than having to re-invent the wheel.
