Hi,

I've read several W3C and DAML docs about RDF, RDFS and DAML (DAML+OIL),
and their role in the Semantic Web project, but I'm still puzzle by the
answers given to the basic question: "why use RDF-based technology rather
than only XML-based?" If one use an OO modeling (expressive issue is
address here) to describe the knowledge related to the target domain,
translating the resulting schemata to XML, shouldn't the XML output
address the same functionality as a RDF-based solution? Is it a mater of
logic/inference capability?

Regards,
