I didn't mean we scrap XHTML, just compliment it with RDF: we can link it
all together when (hopefully) the HTML WG develop a Schema version of XHTML.
We could transform it and then use the RDF with it...

Ideal solution. As the Web was envisaged, they thught that no-one would be
viewing the source, or writing it: it would all be done automatically. Now
maybe that dream will have to be realized, as the system becomes so complex.

I'll check it out - thanks for the tip.

I sure hope so.
