Dear Reader,

Our main feature this week on XML.com is from well-known XML
experts Bob DuCharme and John Cowan.  In "Make Your XML
RDF-Friendly" they describe how to structure XML documents so
that they can be used by RDF processors.

The authors explain: "as RDF interest and application development
grows, there's an increasing payoff in keeping RDF concerns in
mind along with the other best practices as you design document
types."  If you've not done much with RDF before, the article
also provides a useful route to learning about it.


The XML developers' mailing list XML-DEV has often been the source
of innovation and insightful commentary on XML.  The advent of
XML 1.1 and other new specifications from the W3C has prompted
new rounds of vigorous analysis.

Kendall Clark reports this week, in his XML-Deviant column, on
the effects of XML 1.1 on SAX, and investigates what the criteria
are for a successful specification.

Finally this week John Simpson's XML Q&A column considers what is
required to build an XML-based web site.  John provides a useful
set of links to web sites, books and software, including some
interesting pointers even experienced XML hands may not have seen
