I suggest using Knowledge Explorer with its "alternate syntax" KR:

at view = m3 {
at view = m1 {
S1
S2
}
at view = m2 {
S3
S4
}
}

  Thanks for the response Sandro. Although the example I gave had a time
  factor, I think the solution to that problem would be the same as that for a
  practical question just sent to the Jena list. I misunderstood the original
  question, and assumed that what was required was just copying a set of
  statements from one Jena Model to another, I suggested Model.add(Model m).
  But...

  ></rdf:Description>

  So we've got

  m1{
  S1
  S2
  ...
  }


  (Sx is a statement in tonight's syntax)

  and

  m2{
  S1
  S2
  ...
  }

  and what we want is something like

  m3{
  m1{
  S1
  S2
  ...
  }

  m2{
  S1
  S2
  ..
  }
  }

  so as far as I can see can only be done in the RDF model something like

  m3{
  {S1} -isFrom-> m1
  {S2} -isFrom-> m1
  ...
  {S1} -isFrom-> m2
  {S2} -isFrom-> m2
  }

  which not only is convoluted & long-winded but also involves the dread
  reification.

  Suggestions?

  Cheers,
  Danny.
