The problem is not that your IDs are english but that the IDs of your two 
statements are not the same. They are "w3c" and "w3cwebsite" respectively. 
I thought what you wanted to say was that the *same* thing was indicatedBy 
and constitutedBy "www.w3c.org" whereas what your statements assert now is 
that one thing (w3c) is indicatedBy "www.w3c.org" and some other thing 
"w3cwebsite" is constitutedBy "www.w3c.org". I presume now that this is 
what you wanted to say, isn't it?
