Jo,

In

   http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-rdf-comments/2000JulSep/0006.html

you raised an issue with the RDF M&S spec which was recorded in

   http://www.w3.org/2000/03/rdf-tracking/#rdfms-syntax-desc-clarity

as

   The language in section 6 describing the formal grammar is unclear.

On the 26th October 2001, the WG resolved this issue

   http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/w3c-rdfcore-wg/2001Oct/0595.html

   This issue is closed on the grounds that it is resolved by the new
   approach taken to defining the syntax.

Basically, what this means is that the WG are rewriting the syntax documents 
from scratch and using a technique based on an infoset grammar to describe the 
syntax, which addresses the lack of clarity of the original syntax 
specification.  You can find a current WD of the new syntax document and a 
pointer to our other specifications at:

   http://www.w3.org/2001/sw/RDFCore/

Please can you respond to this message, copying www-rdf-comments@w3.org stating 
whether this is an acceptable resolution of the issue.
