Does your build of Mozilla have the TransforMiix module?  This is the 
XSLT processing engine for Mozilla.  I refer you to Axel Hecht's page at 
<http://www.mozilla.org/projects/xslt/>.  Hopefully the FAQ there should 
help you on your way.

Herein lies a big problem.  Unless you have control over the user agent 
(browser) used by your user group, such as in an intranet situation, you 
can run into problems.

Unless you have your own server this may not be much use, but I prefer 
to render content on-the-fly.  If you have a busy site, render and cache.

There is a Perl module for RDF storage - you may have to put your own 
code around this.

Try: 
<http://dmoz.org/Reference/Libraries/Library_and_Information_Science/Technical_Services/Cataloguing/Metadata/RDF/Tools/>

If the link gets mangled by the list software and you can't resolve it, 
Google is your friend:
<http://www.google.com/search?q=rdf+edit+perl>

Hope this helps.

Cheers
