Hi RDF-Interest Group,

This is my first post. I have been experimenting with an idea that I had. I'm trying to work out the
best version of a RDF type that best suits the needs of this concept while fitting into whatever RDF
concept that eventually reaches ubiquity in some futuristic form. I know from what I have been
reading so far about RDF, is that there is no single concept that is going to become the standard.
Yet some how there is going to be a way to access various forms of it in its different types. I
intend to follow this group's progress in its attempt to answer questions that it has in the hopes
of getting answers to questions that I have.

Something Different:

If I were able to show you a prototype application that does the following, would you want to see
it?

1. Makes use of XML element type tags from within HTML pages.

2. Reads a RDF, Dublin Core combination designed for this application in the same HTML page. Has a
display feature for this type of RDF.

3. Makes use of declared links from the HTML document that act as a portal to other relative
information.

4. Auto downloads all of the links declared in item 3 for the creation of combined objects.

5. Allows selections from topical phrases or words, declared with the XML type elements, that
returns selected information created by the markup in a display format.

6. Downloads a document that contains an unlimited number of these RDF type objects; each that
represent a portal to relative information, or diverse subjects.

7. Able to search the document in item 6 for portals that best fit the information being quarried.

8. Works independently with documents that it loads without the need for CGI/server side
interactions. Can be improved to work with RDF documents provided by an on-line database.

9. Works from a website.

10. In its current experimental form accumulates information that could be best described as a house
of cards. This information, that is downloaded, is lost when leaving the website.

11. In a future upgrade, enables the house of cards, through selectivity, to be stored in its object
form as a binary on the user's own hard drive. This would make it possible to search the downloaded
information as a stored archive.

12. Freeware in this house of cards type version.

13. Able to act as a semantic web portal on a local level.

14. Capable of enabling a relational text gathering system through the combined use of these tags
and this application.
