Hello all,

I've written an article called 'RDF for Modular, Extensible Markup':

  "XML provides extensibility through a common syntax but leaves the
  interpretation of the information to the developer. Increasing
  modularity through the use of XML namespaces further increases
  developers' workload as they struggle to interpret ever more
  complex data models. RDF leverages the syntactic extensibility of
  XML and the modularity of XML namespaces and additionally provides
  global extensibility through a common data model."

http://www.semanticplanet.com/2003/04/rdfForModularExtensibleMarkup.html

I sent this originally to xml-dev since it's aimed at XML developers
who might be interested in RDF rather than existing RDF developers.
Because of the target audience it's less precise about some RDF
concepts (such as the distinction between a resource and its class).
My intention was to get people thinking about RDF rather than being
a full RDF tutorial.

All comments are very welcome.
