Maybe the error log ensues from the fact that the docunent is pasted inline
rather than being indicated to the validator through a reference to the
corresponding URL.
In fact, there are two possibilities in order to map relative URIs to
absolute ones:

- by using XML Base: then a relative URI is mapped to an absolute one
through the namespace URI indicated as value of the xml:base attribute in
the RDF root element;
- if the xml:base is not indicated, then a relative URI is mapped to an
absolute one through the the URL of the RDF doc.

Therefore, if the RDF code is pasted inline, then the validator assumes that
the base URI of the doc is "".

Greetings,
Francesco

Good question.

Would someone from the RDF Core WG please review this issue
(also logged at [1] and [2]) and state whether or not this
is a bug in the validator?

Also, if this is a bug in the validator, it would be very
useful if [3] included [a pointer to] a bug list.

Hi,

I am trying to parse some DAML with the validatore parsing of this file used
to give no complaint
except that lately I am being faced with this
error: Error: {W130} Base URI is "", relative URIs
left as relative and I can't figure out why?

Can someone please give a hand.

Charlie
