There is a problem for people (such as myself) who are learning 
and enquring into RDF and do not yet have the tools implemented.

We do have old text based tools which work when people are 
considerate enough to be thoughtful of those not (yet) so 
knowledgable as themselves.

It is not helfpul or considerate or kind to be clever clever about it.  It 
says instead that you aspire to a closed world where only the 
knowledgable are welcome.

I have been reading this group for some time and appreciate the 
ringside seat at the development table.  At the same time I have 
some problems which RDF will I think be of great help to me.

At the moment I have collected a lot of information about tools but 
not yet been able to sort out the appropriate ones for 

It would help me (and I suspect others) if your message lists 
followed what is a convention udsed by many others in software 
development and put  e.g. [SW] at the start of the message.

You clever ones may not need it but it helps incomers.

Thank you
