    I need to work whith a well defined property in RDF, i.e., whith a
well defined range (decimal, from 0 to 1 inclusive). Itīs correct to use
a XML Schema defining xml:decimal, xml:minInclusive, xml:maxInclusive
for this property?

    Another question: the RDF Schema is used merely to formal
definitions of a schema or could I interpret it? Generally, I am using
it just to know the definitions of its properties and classes and until
now I am just reading it. I thought that a parser would need this
definitions to validate a RDF file, but using the Prolog Parser Iīve
noted that I can use inexistent properties in my RDF Schema and the
parser donīt do anything. The Prolog triples are defined whithout any
kind of validation. Is this correct?

    Regards,
        Fernanda.
