SO, lets see if I understand this properly:

As a general rule, valid RDF restricts elements to either attributes or
content, but not both - as per grammar rule 6.12
(and I'm using the first option: 
'<' propName idAttr? '>' value '</' propName '>' - where 
value ::= description | string


I'll re-work my larger test to suit this.. :)
